Growing Prograin means working hand in hand with the largest private value-added soybean company in Canada. It means choosing profits, progress and expertise to continue to prosper.
Producing food-grade soy comes with challenges, but it also brings a well-deserved sense of pride and distinctly superior revenues.
Still, many myths persist about IP production.
Maybe it’s time to set the record straight.
A. NO, thanks to the past 40 years of genetic development conducted at our research centre, Prograin currently markets conventional soybean varieties that rival GMO soybean yields.
The Wilma variety, for example, has a yield of 4876 kgs/ha.
By comparison, four GMO varieties with the same maturity have an average yield of 4602 kgs/ha.

A. NO. Rising world demand for food-grade soy has led the premiums for this product to soar.
Take the time to conduct your own profitability study; it will clearly show that this type of crop, despite the herbicide costs, is a way to optimize your revenues.
