    By now, you should have heard about the exciting new canola system launching in Canada this year. TruFlex™ canola with Roundup Ready® Technology maximizes yield potential by using elite germplasm combined with a second-generation glyphosate-tolerant trait that provides a wider spray window and broader flexibility over glyphosate application rates. This leads to superior weed control and ultimately better yields.

    There are several things to consider when deciding on the right canola variety for your farm. Some place higher priority on shatter tolerance whereas others look more closely at disease resistance, or herbicide tolerance, or contract premium options. The decisive factor for most is what trait, or combination thereof, will allow them to reach their yield aspirations and ultimately give them the best return on investment. Here are some things to consider when looking at each of these variety characteristics:

  • Clubroot MB.jpg

    The Rapid Spread of Clubroot Clubroot is a soil-borne disease that affects cruciferous crops. Most importantly for Western Canadian farmers, it causes galls to grow on the roots of canola plants, choking out nutrients from the plant, ultimately killing it. Since the disease was found in Alberta in 2003, it has continued to spread across the Prairies.

  • Company’s seed production unaffected by delayed Prairie Harvest For Immediate release November 5, 2018 – Winnipeg, MB - CANTERRA SEEDS is ensuring growers of the quality and consistency of its 2019 canola seed supply in light of recent concerns surrounding the delayed harvest across the Prairies. Growers can rest assured that their preferred CANTERRA SEEDS canola products, including the high-yielding clubroot resistant CS2000, will be available for seeding in 2019.

  • Invigor.jpg

    Recently, InVigor canola sent a marketing piece to farmers in Western Canada. It looked like this: Inside there are summaries of their Demonstration Strip Trial (DST) trials from 2017, including comparisons of CS2000, the clubroot resistant hybrid from CANTERRA SEEDS. It's not surprising that BASF sees CS2000 as the hybrid to beat. It's been a top product in the clubroot region of Alberta since its launch. The combination of yield, maturity and unique disease resistance simply cannot be beat.  But when we take a closer look at the yield data they included, we are concerned about the way CS2000 is being represented.

    What are the Canola Performance Trials? The CPT or Canola Performance Trials are a grower-funded, third-party testing initiative that’s regarded as one of the best sources for unbiased data on the most popular canola varieties on the market. The CPTs have been published for many years, and growers have made it known that they value this type of data and would like it to continue. In a 2015 survey, 90% of respondents said data from an independent third-party source was either somewhat or very important to them.

    The Canola Performance Trials (CPT) are run by the Canola Council of Canada, with support funding from the three provinical canola grower groups. They aim to provide unbiased performance data that reflects actual production practices, and comparative data on leading varieties and newly introduced varieties. What do the 2017 CPT results say?
