SPONSORED CONTENT: Brevant seeds high-yielding canola hybrids deliver disease resistance
Disease pressure is an ongoing concern for canola farmers. Diseases like clubroot and blackleg continue to spread across the Canadian Prairies, with the potential to dramatically affect crop yields.

Experts advise farmers to include clubroot resistant canola hybrids in their rotations, even if the pathogens haven’t been detected in their fields yet.
“Blackleg and clubroot are both serious diseases of canola that are growing in severity. Choosing high-performing hybrids with strong disease resistance is one way farmers can be prepared,” says Darrin Hicks, Canola Product Manager with Corteva Agriscience™, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont.
Hybrid options with outstanding disease packages
Corteva Agriscience is the business behind Brevant™ seeds, the new premium retail seed brand offering farmers a selection of canola hybrids with outstanding disease resistance packages.
For example, Brevant 1026 RR is a Roundup Ready® hybrid that offers clubroot resistance plus protection against blackleg and fusarium wilt. It also provides excellent early season vigor, lodging resistance and standability.
Brevant 1024 RR is the complete package, designed for performance and profit. It meets the needs of today’s farms, delivering on all fronts – through strong early season vigor, excellent disease resistance (clubroot and blackleg) and high yield potential.
If farmers are looking to switch up their canola system, but don’t want to compromise on yield, Brevant offers hybrids that use the Clearfield® system. For example, Brevant 2026 CL uses the Clearfield ® system to help protect against herbicide resistance, while also delivering the yields farmers want. It delivers excellent early season vigor and late season lodging resistance and harvestability.
For farmers who are interested in saving time by straight cutting, Brevant seeds has a canola hybrid to fit the bill: Brevant 2024 CL. This hybrid uses pod-shatter reduction technology in a medium-height plant with excellent lodging resistance to make straight cutting or delayed swathing easy. It also has a great disease resistance package so farmers get nothing but yield.
All of the above mentioned hybrids are available for the Nexera™ contracting system. Earn even more when you sign a Nexera production contract!

More options, more ways to protect your crop
Brevant seeds will not only offer Roundup Ready and Clearfield hybrids, they will soon offer Optimum® GLY and LibertyLink® (pending regulatory approval). This will make Brevant seeds one of the first retail seed brands to offer all four herbicide tolerant systems.
Farmers can also protect their Brevant canola seed investment by using DuPont™ Lumiderm® insecticide seed treatment, available on all Brevant canola seeds. For flea beetle and cutworm control, Lumiderm seed treatment is the answer. With its unique Group 28 insecticide, Lumiderm is a valuable resistance management tool that also offers more consistent protection against crucifer and striped flea beetles.
“We’re excited to bring farmers Brevant seeds, leading genetics powered by the global research and development program at Corteva Agriscience,” says Hicks.
