Rutherford Farms


Always on the lookout for new crops, Rick, along with other farmers in Manitoba, became involved with NorthStar Genetics. This group is developing new kinds of soybeans suited to the shorter Canadian growing season. The results of their efforts are a line of soybeans which reflect the diverse growing conditions of the Prairies. Rick has worked with this group and has grown a number of foundation crops which are thriving in our growing conditions.

Contact Rick and he will help you choose the best soybean for your land needs.
