getResource() is deprecated so my question is what do I need to use instead to be future proof for next updates.

I use this function like below in the catalog list.phtml

$seedBank = $_product->getResource()->getAttribute('brand')->getFrontend()->getValue($_product);

You can get product custom attribute option label directly as below:


This will return label of product selected brand.

Have an instance of \Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product as a dependency for your class and call methods from that class.

 * @var \Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product

private $productResource;

public function __construct(
    \Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product $productResource,
) {
    $this->productResource = $productResource;

Now, in the methods where you need the value, let's say $_product is the product instance you can do this:

$seedBank = $this->productResource->getAttribute('brand')->getFrontend()->getValue($_product);

    Thanks, this will work on other pages. On the Category page the following will be enough: $_product->getAttributeText('brand');

  • $this->productResource->getAttribute('brand')->getFrontend()->getValue($_product); not productResource() is not a function
