Recently there has been an emergence of oil seed crops being planted across the region giving producers new varieties of crops to plant and alternative options for wheat rotation. A major factor that has held up the expansion and adoption of oil seed crops has been producers finding it difficult to source seed and a place to sell the crops.
Northern Ag’s Lane Nordlund recently interviewed Dan Story with Safflower Technologies International, a company that is working fill that marketing gap. Safflower Technologies International is working to provide growers a place to purchase and sell their oil seed crops across Montana and North Dakota. Also interviewed was Henry Hollenbeck, a rancher from Molt, MT, on how he utilizes oil seed crops on his ranch.
