Over the years, Canada has had countless success stories in Agriculture, but perhaps there’s none more important (and profitable!) than the development of canola. Since its creation in the mid-1970’s canola has become the world’s biggest producer, hitting more than 20 million tonnes in 2018*, as worldwide demand continues to grow.

Bayer is proud to play a part in helping Canadian farmers, season after season, strive for their best yields yet. The tradition of innovation continues with TruFlexTM canola with Roundup Ready® Technology; part of our improved canola system designed specifically to give you the flexibility you need for your growing conditions. That flexibility means a broader pesticide application window and application rate than anything we’ve ever offered.

And that’s a good thing. Flexible application window and spray rates give the TruFlex canola system control over a wide range of weeds. How many exactly? 51 to be exact. That’s twenty-four more than standard Roundup Ready canola system^. Add it all up and TruFlex canola means cleaner fields, an easier, smoother harvest and higher yield potential compared to our previous technology.

So, what makes TruFlex canola with Roundup Ready Technology so special? That’s a complicated question, but it all comes down to three distinct advantages.

SUPERIOR CONTROL OF TOUGH WEEDS

The flexibility of the TruFlex canola system allows for the control of harder-to-kill weeds like cleavers, foxtail barley and wild buckwheat. It also helps enable season‑long dandelion control.

FLEXIBILITY IN SPRAY RATES AND TIMING

TruFlex canola has a wider application window than our previous technology. If weather or a late flush of weeds delays spray dates, you can spray up to first flower when applying sequential rates of 0.67 L/ac. of Roundup WeatherMAX® to help get the job done.

HIGHER YIELD POTENTIAL THROUGH GENETICS AND CROP SAFETY

New genetics have packed a lot of yield potential into each TruFlex canola seed. New advances in trait technology helps to enable better weed control and crop safety compared to Roundup Ready® canola. It’s a next-level combination that looks to give you the opportunity to see bin filling yield potential* come harvest time**.

While the TruFlex canola system is a great starting point for a successful growing season,  adding the power of data with Climate FieldViewTM just might put it into overdrive. FieldView helps to make more informed decisions through seamless collection and storage of your canola crop’s data. FieldView allowsyou to monitor and measure the impact your decisions make on crop performance as well as manage field variability by building customized fertility and seeding plans that help make the most of the TruFlex canola system, season after season to optimize yield and maximize profit.

As you look ahead to 2021, and your canola crop, consider adding TruFlex canola with Roundup Ready Technology. Backed by Bayer, there’s never been a better time to grow.
