Dear valued customer:
Please ensure you have our new address on correspondence and all shipments to the lab: 507-11th Ave, Nisku, AB T9E 7N5
We will be moving soon...again!
We moved at the end of June into temporary digs. And soon will be moving into our new lab. There may be telephone service disruptions during the final move in late December and we apologize in advance if you don't get us on your first try. Thank you for your patience and we look forward to hosting you in our new building soon.
Seed Quality Update
Mother Nature has her way of reminding us that she really works the magic or casts the spells.
This season she has done both, germination and vigour results are coming back very strong. This year we haven’t seen the dormancy, frost or troubling delays with germination, but we have certainly seen our fair share of pathogens.
Cereals and Pulse crops are affected the most; we are finding higher levels of Fusarium graminearum
on cereals which can sometimes result in a retest because one infected seed can cause so much secondary infection.
Show season has also kicked off, the first one being the Ag Show in Red Deer several weeks ago and now the Farming Smarter Conference in Medicine Hat is underway.
We will be there too, in fact Shay Isleifson our office manager will be at the booth, as well as myself. Please drop by and see us. We have some interesting topics on our display and also some trade show specials, BUT you have to come by to qualify!! We look forward to seeing you there.
See you all soon,

Fusarium is on the increase
Although Alberta seed producers have done an excellent job of managing the risks associated with diseases, many of our clients have been concerned about Fusarium graminearum in their cereals this season and have been requesting more disease testing. Click here for more details.
