Important Update - Advancements in Cereal Grains:
While seed laws and regulations have not changed, breeding has. Advancements with scab tolerance, standability, yield, and disease resistance have been great. As a result, owners of various varieties – biotech companies - have sought to safeguard their research and investment by obtaining patents and PVPA protection on new variety releases to protect their intellectual property. For instance, on wheat and triticale varieties, approximately 70% are currently patented and 28% are PVPA protected (the remaining 2% are older lines that are limited and falling out of favor). Protecting their investment in this way will allow them to continue to bring you better varieties in the future.

Pay close attention to the tag on the seed you are planting so as not to inadvertently violate patent and PVPA laws.

GROWMARK FS congratulates grower Henry G Everman of Dansville, NY as the 2020 Overall Yield Contest Winner in the Conventional Non-Irrigated Category. He placed first in New York State for his crop of FS InVISION FS 6202V, topping out at 299.8 bushels. Henry works with GFS Agronomist and Crop Specialist Don Jones on his growing strategy and inputs.

“One thing you learn about Mother Nature is that you can’t control it,” notes Jones. “So you control the inputs and the timing instead. Henry will not make the mistake to plant too early and that’s been key to his success.”
