Boost your profits. Provide habitat.

Winter wheat is a must-grow in Manitoba. With excellent yield potential and return on investment, farmers have found winter wheat to be one of their most profitable crops.

Winter wheat uses moisture in the fall and early spring, so it doesn’t compete with other crops. And if wet fields make spring seeding a problem, you can rest easier knowing winter wheat is already in the ground.

New high-yield varieties including Wildfire are available and variants with improved disease tolerance and protein content are introduced every year.
