How is certified seed produced?
FP Genetics’ MISSION is to provide market-leading pedigreed seed and services that bring value to our customers, our shareholders and our company.
FP Genetics’ VISION is to be the leading pedigreed seed supplier in all markets that we serve.
FP Genetics was founded in March 2008 based on the principles of honesty, integrity and good business practice to create a seed production, distribution and sales force in Western Canada.
The company is owned by over 150 shareholders, most being pedigree seed growers along with some retail shareholders. Our shareholders are seed experts who provide their customers with the leading varieties and expert advice so that growers have the right seed and seed additives for their farms.
The shareholder network spans the entire agricultural producing area in Western Canada from the Red River Valley in Manitoba to the Peace River District of Alberta.
FP Genetics has more than 60 varieties of various crop types including wheat and durum (such as AC® Transcend and CDC Plentiful), barley, oats, flax, triticale, peas, lentils and fall rye. Brasetto fall rye is the first viable cereal hybrid in Western Canada.
