Phillex Quinoa Variety Trial
Percy Phillips, Phillex Quinoa
To demonstrate the use of cover cropping strategies
Attached report shows the average grain yield by variety and the mean yield for all varieties.
PCDF collaborates with Percy Phillips of Phillex, Ltd. to examine the potential of new quinoa varieties for production in Manitoba. The yields observed for 2019 were low in comparison to previous years, due in large part to poor conditions for crop establishment. The first 24 days after planting saw high winds and just 30% of the normal precipitation for the period. Consequently, emergence was not uniform across the plots and yields were generally lower than those observed in other years.
