Albert Lea Seed Commits $50,000 for University of Minnesota Winter Cereal Rye Research

Albert Lea Seed pledged $50,000 to winter cereal rye research being led by the University of Minnesota’s Northwest Research and Outreach Center (

The donation will support NWROC’s research and outreach program for the sustainable and profitable production of rye by characterizing specific cereal rye varieties in field testing so that farmers can understand which varieties and planting strategies will work for their on-farm conditions.

Winter cereal rye already is the most planted cover crop in the Upper Midwest because of its low cost, ease of establishment, winter survivability, and biomass production. The University of Minnesota’s research will help farmers make variety decisions about this and other potential uses for forage, animal feed, distilling, and milling.
