2014 Manitoba Recommendation Trials

The 2014 MANITOBA RECOMMENDATION TRIALS will again serve two purposes:

1)      To provide regional performance data of registered varieties and previously supported lines for submission in SEED MANITOBA 2015 and the 2014 Pulse Variety Evaluation insert.  It is recommended to only enter varieties that you are actively marketing.
2)      To develop the Manitoba data package for unregistered soybean lines that will be presented to the 2015 Ontario Oil and Protein Seed Crop Committee (OOPSCC) meeting requesting support for registration of the line through the Manitoba West subcommittee. This is intended for varieties that will ultimately be marketed in Western Canada.

Depending on the size of the trial, the Soybean Committee of the Manitoba Pulse Growers Association reserves the right to limit the number of entries per company.

The trials are set up to test Conventional and Roundup Ready varieties separately in 4 groups:
1.   Early to Mid Season – Conventional (focus on mid to high protein and specialty traits)
2.   Early to Mid Season – Roundup Ready
3.   Mid to Late Season – Conventional (focus on mid to high protein and specialty traits)
4.   Mid to Late Season – Roundup Ready

Site locations, seed requirements and costs are found on the Manitoba Recommendation Trial entry form.
