PLEASE READ BEFORE APPLYING

APPLICATIONS ARE REVIEWED BASED ON THREE CRITERIA: LOCATION, PREVIOUS RESIDUAL CHEMICALS USED AND PREVIOUS CROP

GROWERS MAY NOT BE CONSIDERED IF:

A)  THEY ARE FOLLOWING SMALL SEEDED CROPS, SUCH AS CANOLA WITH INTENTIONS TO SEED QUINOA.  THESE ARE DIFFICULT TO SEPERATE IN THE CLEANING PROCESS.

B) YOUR FARM LOCATION IS IN THE SOUTHERN PRAIRIES. QUINOA  IS HIGHLY SENSITIVE TO DIFFERENT SOIL TYPES AND CLIMATIC CONDITIONS.

C)  YOU HAVE USED HERBICIDES IN THE PAST YEAR THAT HAVE A RESIDUAL EFFECT IN THE SOILS (SUCH AS IMAZETHAPYR, IMAZAMOX, PYRASULFOTOLE, ETC).

***Please note:  All interested growers who fill out an application will be contacted to discuss best growing practices.  Additionally, grower contracts are NOT filled on a first come first serve basis: but rather offered to the best suited candidates upon review.****
