Flax industry confident seed supplies adequate – The Western Producer
Here is a snippet from The Western Producer:
Concerns are growing about flax seed prices and availability next spring as Canada puts the finishing touches on efforts to rid the country of the genetically modified variety Triffid.
However, Todd Hyra of SeCan said he doesn’t expect problems next year.
“One of my goals is to make sure the market isn’t shorted next spring,” said Hyra, who is in charge of seed increase for both the new and the re-constituted flax varieties that meet the non-Triffid criteria.
