"I have grown CDC Adamant VB for the past two years. I think the combination of high yield with both midge resistance and wheat stem sawfly tolerance will make CDC Adamant VB a winner for my customers."
- Barry Reisner, Reisner Farm Ltd., Limerick, SK
"CDC Adamant VB looks to be a very promising hard red spring wheat variety. It has high yield (one of the first spring wheats to yield as well as our new durum varieties), sawfly resistance, midge tolerance, good thrashability without risk of shelling and just a nice looking, deep red wheat. Looks like a winner!"
- Don Welsh, Sleepy Hollow Seeds Ltd., Milk River, AB
"CDC Adamant VB is a sawfly resistant CWRS that stands well, with good quality and higher yield potential. CDC Adamant VB is set to replace Lilian with the added bonus of midge tolerance. Two years into propagation with one year to go before launch, it looks like it will be at the top of its class."
- Kevin Yauck, Yauck Seed Farm, Govan, SK
"With the changing of varieties to different classes, CDC Adamant VB in the first two years of multiplication has shown very strong results to fill the need for a sawfly resistant variety with the added benefit of midge tolerance in the CWRS class exceeding yield and quality results. It will be the go to CWRS in Western Canadian regions that require these needs."
