We Are Focused

We know beans, and we take that statement seriously. Soybeans are our primary product, and we “scour the country” for the best. We extensively grow and test our seed locally and, combined, our owners/conditioners represent over 250 years of seed growing experience which is unmatched in our industry. This experience proves our approach works and enables us to give you feedback on what is going to work on your farm. We are passionate about soybeans and dedicated to helping you grow successful crops year after year.

We Are Local

NorthStar Genetics seed grown locally by our owners/conditioners on the same ground as yours. We cover a broad geography and can provide testimonials and recommendations from local growers, so you can grow NorthStar seed with full confidence that it will perform on your farm.

We Are Personalized

Good seed comes in different packages, and we know farmers need options. If you are a farmer who has a longer growing season, we have seed to give you the yield you expect. If you have a shorter season, we have early maturity beans to get you into the harvest window. Cyst nematode? We’ve got you covered. IDC tolerant beans? Just tell us where to deliver them. Since weed resistance is a growing issue, we have four trait package options for your farm. We scour the country for the best so we can get them to you.

We Are Responsive

Our delivery in-season is second to none. Our owners/conditioners have state-of-the-art equipment, so we are capable to deliver in-season quickly. We work very closely with our owner/conditioners to make sure that we can react quickly to any needs you might have. Our 20 years of experience proves we have what it takes to get you what you need, when you need it.


Our Story

After over ten years of business in Western Canada, NorthStar Genetics has seen soybean acres grow from almost zero to millions.

Originally NorthStar Genetics Manitoba, NorthStar Genetics Canada started as a partnership of 12 Manitoba seed growers/processors and NorthStar Genetics from Minnesota with the belief that there were soybean varieties being developed that would thrive in Manitoba. As these varieties grew in popularity in Manitoba more and more were developed with earlier and earlier maturities, allowing NorthStar Genetics to expand their market into Saskatchewan.

NorthStar Genetics is a trusted soybean seed provider, dedicated to extensive, first-hand testing and trials. Their seed growers started with the belief that the varieties should be tested on their own farms, to ensure quality and performance specific to their local growing areas.

NorthStar Genetics has dedicated staff members, an extensive network of dealers, and a product lineup of the highest quality of locally tested, locally grown, earliest maturing varieties in Western Canada.
