Pierce County Agriculture Improvement Association Offering Genesis Barley, Joppa Durum, and ND Henson Soybeans

The Pierce County Agriculture Improvement Association (PCAIA) has an adequate supply of Genesis barley, Joppa durum, and ND Henson soybean available for distribution to commodity growers for the 2016 growing season.

The North Dakota Variety Trial Results for 2015 and Selection Guide can be accessed on the web at: www.ag.ndsu.edu/varietytrials or by picking up a copy at the Pierce County Extension office.

Seed of Genesis barley, Joppa durum, and ND Henson soybean is available through the Pierce County Ag Improvement Association. To request seed lots, contact the Pierce County Extension office at 776-6234 ext. 5.

At this time there is no limit on the amount of bushels that can be requested by individual growers within Pierce County, however if there are more requests than bushels available the PCAIA will review requests and allocate bushels to growers as fairly as possible. PCAIA review of requests and grower allocations will take place sometime after the Annual PCAIA meeting in mid-February.
