About

Pasquia Seed Potatoes is a small family farm and has been supplying certified potato seed for the past 21 years.


We have established clients from coast to coast including USA and are located in the farthest northeast farming area of Saskatchewan. This has given us the benefit of isolation with our closest neighbouring potato farm an hours' drive away.


The ONLY seed we bring to our farm to start the propagation process are nuclear tubers. Post Harvest test results for BRR,PVY,PLRV,PVA and PCN soil samples are 100% negative and available on this website for viewing. BRR has been tested two ways- 1. cellulase A gene sequence, 2. CL official protocol version 9.






NORTHERN VIGOR

What is it? Seed produced from plants in northern latitudes outperform that produced in southern latitudes even if they come from the same plant or clone.


Our latitude is north of 53.

Saskatchewan's northern environment offers:

  • Long warm days
  • Short cool nights
  • Low humidity
  • Short growing season

These conditions produce seed with Northern Vigor that is:

  • Physiologically young
  • Increased tolerance of cold wet soils
  • Increased canopy vigor that means slower dieback and recovery from damage

BOTTOM LINE IS CONSISTENLY BETTER QUALITY-PERFORMANCE-RETURNS
