Pelta™ seed pelleting technology from Syngenta Canada helps take some of the uncertainty out of growing canola by making seed more uniform in size.

Uniform canola seed enables better singulation planter performance and more accurate seed placement for greater seed survivability and even stand establishment.

Product Benefits

  • By taking the variability out of canola seed size, Pelta helps singulation planters perform at their peak by facilitating more accurate seed placement.
  • Consistent-sized Pelta seed also helps growers avoid common issues that can impact stand establishment, like double or triple-planted seed.
  • More accurate seed placement means canola plants emerge more uniformly, don’t compete for resources and develop evenly.
  • This helps ease decisions around in-season herbicide, Sclerotinia fungicide and desiccant application timing. 
  • Each bag of canola seed with Pelta technology contains the same number of seeds, so growers can purchase exactly what they need to meet their target seedlings per acre.
