Proven Performance Trials summary

After a banner year for the Proven Performance Trials program with over 200 canola, cereal, corn and soybean trials across the Prairies, harvest data has been compiled. Proven Seed and Crop Production Services are dedicated to putting our seed varieties to the test and are happy to share that performance data with growers.

The Proven Performance Trials are locally managed by our research teams, Managers of Agronomic Services, retails and most importantly, producers.

Local Performance Checks are run by the CPS Research Development and Innovation team and are small scale replicated trials. Field Performance Checks are managed by the CPS Managers of Agronomic Services with local producers and include Proven Seed commercial varieties as well as experimental varieties that may be registered in future growing seasons. Fieldscale Retail Demonstrations are run locally by CPS retail staff and producers and are used to compare commercial varieties with local competitive varieties chosen by the producer.

Proven Where It Counts

Proven Performance Trials is the largest seed variety comparison program in Western Canada – the most varieties, of the most crops, across a diverse set of geographies. We put our seed to the test by working with hundreds of cooperators to ensure that our seed performs best where it counts – on large scale, producer-managed fields.
