Sept. 9, 2013 - The Manitoba Crop Variety Evaluation Team (MCVET) has published winter wheat yield data collected in 2013 at five sites, and updated variety descriptions that include two new registered varieties: Emerson and AAC Gateway. Additional site data, along with long term yield data and protein data incorporating all the 2013 results, will be available December in Seed Manitoba 2014.
Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives reminds producers that data accumulated over several sites in a single year must always be viewed with caution. Varieties that excel under one set of environmental conditions may not perform as well under the next year's conditions. The new varieties of Emerson and AAC Gateway were tested for the first time in 2012/13, so additional caution must be exercised when evaluating the performance of these two varieties with the limited dataset.
