Regional Variety Trial information can be found in a number of places. Factsheets that can be downloaded as a .pdf are on Alberta Agriculture’s website. As well, this information is published as a hard copy in the Alberta Seed Guide, can be found on-line at www.seed.ab.ca. And some of the commissions publish the specific information to their organizations.
