Quinoa Production

Michael and Colin Dutcheshen of Northern Quinoa Corporation from Saskatoon, SK., and Neil Stranden a farmer near Outlook, SK. See the harvesting of a crop of Quinoa which is from the spinach family but is referred to as a pseudo cereal because of its versatility and it is also gluten free. The crop originated over 5,000 years ago in South America. It seems to grow well on well drained prairie soils and grows to maturity easily. At the time of our visit, Neil Stranden figures the crop pays him just as well per acre as any of his other major crops.
