We were thrilled to have the Shaun Haney of Real Ag and his guest’s, Jeff English of ThinkShift and the grower panel of Rob Stone and Jeff Bennet join us in the Alliance Seed booth to record their show.

Alliance Seed at Agri-trade Equipment Expo & RealAg Radio. (Nov. 6/2019)
Alliance Seed was honored to become an exhibitor at Agri-trade Equipment Expo in Red Deer for first time November 6-8, 2019. What a great show it was considering the weather conditions and the amount of harvest that there is left to do in some areas of Alberta (and the rest of the Prairies) We had a very busy three days at the show, visiting with everyone and talking everything seed and cereals. Colin Tanner is always in his happy place talking about varieties and getting feedback and giving advice.
We were thrilled to have the RealAg Radio team join us in the Alliance Seed booth this year to record that day’s show. Shaun interviewed Jim Bagshaw, the new General Manager of Alliance Seed. Shaun and Jim talked about Jim’s move to Alliance Seed, and what attracted him to Alliance Seed (besides the great staff) and what he sees that sets Alliance Seed from other seed companies. You can listen to Shaun’s interview with Jim here.

CARRYOVER SEED PROCEDURE FOR CSGA
Great news for everyone! The Canadian Seed Growers Association has added a way for growers to add carry over seed inventories to the Online Pedigree Seed Locator as well as the provincial seed guides. Up until recently, only fields that were inspected in current year were listed in these. Now with this, it provides a great opportunity for growers to advertise and sell carry over seed! It only takes a few minutes to do it. All you need is your CSGA Login and Password and the valid crop certificate of the carryover seed lot. Attached is a quick step by step guide, and we encourage everyone to take a moment to do it.

The Western Canada Crop Production Show (WCCPS) in Saskatoon, Sask has come and gone. It was good to see everyone at the show and see everyone taking in Crop Sphere, and the Saskatchewan Seed Growers meeting. What a busy time for the staff of Alliance Seed! We were pumped to have the RealAg Radio team join us in the Alliance Seed booth this year. We were also fortunate to have some meet some new friends as Jessika Guse did the top ag news stories of the day; and then Shaun interviewed Chris. Shaun also interview Tom Wolf, of Sprayer 101 about how implementing a small change to your sprayer can have a major impact on results, and he was also joined by Tim Burrack, vice chairman of the Global Farmer Network, policy.
