• Yield: 104 per cent of DEKALB 73-45 (22 sites); 99 per cent of DuPont Pioneer 45H29 (14 sites)
• Maturity: 0.9 days later than 73-45; 0.7 days earlier than 45H29
• Height: 2 inches or 5.8 cm taller than 73-45; 5 inches or 12.7 cm shorter than 45H29
• Lodging: +0.3 compared to 73-45 and 45H29
SY4114 will be available for sale in limited commercial quantities this fall for seeding in 2014, and is the second variety in the Syngenta canola seed offering that was announced in October 2012. Together with SY4135, this new canola variety complements the existing Syngenta canola portfolio of Helix Vibrance seed treatment, Touchdown Total herbicide, Astound fungicide and Matador insecticide.
