Grain Millers of Yorkton, Saskatchewan has added Canterra Seeds’ CS Camden oat to its list of recommended varieties after a test run of the oat.

CS Camden was registered in Canada in January 2014 after being bred by Lantmannen SW Seed and tested by Canterra Seeds. It is considered to be agronomically superior, with a shorter statue and better lodging resistance.

"We've heard from growers how happy they are with the agronomics of the variety, and are eager to recommend it for milling in our operation,"  Terry Tyson, grain procurement manager for Grain Millers, said.

The yield for CS Camden was also a huge factor of its approval as it gets an average of 114 percent of CDC Dancer and 153 bushels per acre. 

Canterra Seeds executives say they have worked hard with the industry to bring a valuable product to seed grower partners and their customers.

"We work closely with end-users to find varieties that meet their quality needs, while making sure we meet the agronomic demands of today's growers," Brent Derkatch, Canterra Seeds' director of operations and business development, said. 

Canterra Seeds works within the agriculture industry with a portfolio focused on cereals, pulses and oilseeds and in the spring, the company hopes to see the sales of CS Camden increase. 

"It's great to see a high-class new oat variety come along," Tyson said. "We're excited to see genetics moving forward."
