Alliance Seed Corporation recently launched a promotion targeted at Western Canadian farmers. CDC Verona, a durum variety, is the Alliiance’s latest offering. Durum wheat is used almost exclusively for making pasta…its seemed only fitting to invite farmers to eat what they sow.
“CDC Verona is the first wheat variety I developed as a durum breeder at the CDC and I’m proud of the result. High yield, strong straw, excellent threshability, combined with good disease resistance and excellent end-use quality: indeed a strong package for Canadian durum growers. The journey from a small research plot in Saskatoon to seeing CDC Verona in commercial fields across the prairies has been one of my most rewarding experiences.” –Crop Development Center, University of Saskatchewan
