Breeder Seed

The CDC produces breeder seed of 65 different varieties representing 12 different crop kinds. Our breeder seed is produced in small plots and provides the original parent seed for all other classes of pedigreed seed. We ensure that our breeder seed is grown and processed to the highest standards.

Breeder Seed Facility

Our Breeder Seed Facility is a state of the art 10,000 square foot seed cleaning facility located on the Kernen Crop Research Farm. This facility is used to clean the CDC's breeder seed, which is shipped to select seed growers and seed companies across Western Canada. The faciltiy utilizes a variety of different equipment pieces including a screen machine, gravity table, Dodder Mill and a huetronic color seed sorter. 


Due to the increasing costs of producing Breeder Seed, we have made the decision to increase our Breeder Seed cost to remain revenue neutral.
