Growers have grown patented Pod Shatter Reduction technology from InVigor® hybrid canola on more than 40 million acres across Canada since 2014. It’s the trait growers trust to help protect yield by safely retaining the seeds in the pod until they are ready to harvest—even under adverse conditions.
Pod Shatter Reduction hybrids give growers the advantage of adapting to the conditions around busy harvest time, giving you one less thing to worry about. Allowing growers, the flexibility to straight cut or delay swath without sacrificing yield potential.
Helps protect your yield
Harvest flexibility to delay swath or straight cut
Reduces harvest loss from equipment losses, late fall harvests and overwintered canola
Minimize the impact of late-season wind, hail and snow
Longer pod fill resulting in larger seeds and maximizing yield
Reduces volunteer canola
Monitor seeding rate to achieve desired target plant population – We recommend targeting a uniform plant population of 5 to 7 plants/ft2 by adjusting seeding rates based on the TSW range of the seed
Eliminate weeds – Clean fields are easier to straight cut; weeds, when still green, can cause both harvest and storage issues
Be on the lookout for green plant material – Monitor your harvested canola seed even if it comes off dry as there is a greater chance of plant material making it into the sample
Maintain appropriate combine and reel speeds – You must re-evaluate all of your combine settings when straight cutting, which could involve slower harvest speeds; if you are using a reel, ensure the speed of the reel matches the speed of your combine
Consider using a pre-harvest application of Eragon® LQ herbicide + glyphosate to reduce green material and allow the crop to dry down more evenly
