There are no royalties or seed marketing agen-cy fees attached to use or sale of seed produced from Breeder seed of public release varieties. While subsequent seed pro-duction may be Pedigreed, this is the buyers choice and the buyer may increase the seed of public release varieties in any way he/she wishes (only pedigreed seed can be sold by variety name, for most major crop kinds). To purchase Breeder seed of public release varieties, contact the breeding institution listed in the Breeding Institution and Seed Distributors listings on pag-es 30-32.

  • VR2 The Western Producer

    The cropland of Saskatchewan has been divided into four areas based roughly on agro-climatic conditions. Crop yields can vary from area to area. In choosing a variety, producers will want to consider the yield data in combination with marketing and agronomic factors.Area 1: Drought is a definite hazard and high winds are common. Sawfly outbreaks often occur in this area. Cereal rust may be a problem in the southeastern section.Area 2: Drought and sawfly may be problems in the western and central sections of the area. Cereal rust may be a problem in the south-ern section.Area 3: Sawfly can also be a problem. Drought is not as likely to be a problem in this area, particularly in the east. Cereal rust may occur in the eastern portion. The frost-free period can be fairly short in the northern section.Area 4: Rainfall is usually adequate for crop production. However, early fall frosts and wet harvest conditions are frequent problems.Note About Dividing Lines:The dividing lines do not represent distinct changes over a short distance. The change from one area to another is gradual.
