  • "Hybridization in rye is a major step forward in rye genetics in Western Canada. The yield potential from hybrid varieties like Bono appears to be very high given decent conditions. A major step in yield potential is what rye needs to be a competitive cereal."

    - Lee Moats, PAg., Farmer, Riceton SK

  • "We are really happy with its winter hardiness and standability. The Bono was shorter than the Brasetto and was great to straight cut. The yield last year was 118 bushels per acre with good falling numbers. We are quite happy with the Bono in our rotation."
