Trusted technology.

Growers have grown patented Pod Shatter Reduction technology from InVigor® hybrid canola on more than 53 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:

Refers to the pre-harvest release of seeds, when the pod seam and connective tissue break apart and release seeds

Pod Drop:

Indicates the loss of an entire pod from a weakened stem

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. This allows growers the flexibility to straight cut or delay swath while helping protect yield potential.

Pod Shatter Reduction technology separates InVigor from the rest of

the field.

  • Helps protect your yield

  • Harvest flexibility to delay swath or straight cut

  • Reduces harvest loss from equipment losses, late fall harvest and overwintered canola

  • Minimize the impact of late-season wind, hail and snow

  • Longer pod fill resulting in larger seed and maximizing yield

  • Reduces volunteer canola

Tips for straight cutting.

  • 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

1 To predominant clubroot pathotypes found in Canada at the time of registration. InVigor L350PC, InVigor L340PC and InVigor L255PC share the same first-generation clubroot resistance profile. InVigor L343PC has the resistance profile plus it contains second-generation multigenic clubroot resistance to additional clubroot resistance pathotypes to help combat evolving clubroot pathotypes.

2 Western Canada Canola/Rapesed Recommending Committee.

3 We recommend growing InVigor L343PC with second-generation clubroot resistance in clubroot-affected areas after two cycles of growing first-generation clubroot-resistant hybrids or when clubroot symptoms appear in first-generation clubroot-resistant hybrids.
