Bayer changes reseeding program
By Top Crop Manager
Sept. 16, 2013, Calgary, AB - Bayer CropScience is investing in changes to its early establishment canola program for the 2014 growing season.
For the 2014 season, InVigor hybrid canola growers who have early establishment issues and reseed back to InVigor will qualify for a $40 per acre refund from Bayer CropScience. This represents a 60 per cent increase in the early establishment reseeding program to support growers continuing to grow InVigor hybrid canola.
The current early season establishment program, TraitGuard, will no longer be offered in 2014. TraitGuard was designed to refund the trait fee on those InVigor canola acres that failed to establish by the end of June each year. In a news release, Bayer says that although the TraitGuard program enjoyed some success, the logistics and resources of managing the program for all involved had proven to be a bigger challenge than had been forecasted.
