WINNIPEG, MB – CANTERRA SEEDS is excited to announce CS2600 CR-T will be available to Western Canadian farmers for 2019 spring planting.
Bayer confirmed today in a press release that China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs (MARA) has granted safety certificate approval for the import and food/feed use of TruFlex™ canola with Roundup Ready® technology (MON88302). MARA has notified Bayer that a safety certificate for TruFlex™ canola has been granted. MARA has publicly posted this information on their website and Bayer is awaiting final documentation, which they expect to receive shortly.
The TruFlex™ trait is the newest canola trait from Bayer and is designed for a broad range of growing conditions. The benefits to growers include: improved control of tough weeds, flexibility in spray rates and timing, and higher yield potential through genetics and improved crop safety, all as compared to Bayer’s current technology.
CS2600 CR-T is the new TruFlex™ canola hybrid from CANTERRA SEEDS. In addition to the TruFlex™ canola trait, this multi-benefit hybrid offers unique clubroot resistance and straight-cut potential, combined with above average yields. With its early maturity, CS2600 CR-T should be an excellent fit in clubroot and shorter season growing zones.
“We are very pleased to be one of the first companies offering a TruFlex hybrid to the market,” said David Hansen, President & CEO for CANTERRA SEEDS. “Growers are excited about this new technology, and CS2600 CR-T is an excellent hybrid that provides many of the features they are looking for.”
