InVigor® Canola

InVigor canola hybrids continue to revolutionize the industry by delivering vigorous early season growth, uniformity in height and maturity, superior genetic potential for yield and – most importantly – the ability to consistently outperform other hybrids and canola varieties, even under stressful growing conditions. That's why InVigor continues to dominate yield rankings in a multitude of trials.

Benefits of InVigor® Canola

  • Top-yielding canola outperforms the competition, even in adverse growing conditions
  • Pod shatter reduction technology to protect yield potential and deliver added flexibility at harvest
  • Liberty® herbicide use on InVigor canola hybrids with the LibertyLink® trait provides an excellent means for growers to rotate non-selective herbicide systems to effectively manage weed resistance
  • With InVigor canola, farmers across the northern tier of the United States have more options to overcome growing and harvesting challenges, fight disease pressure and improve profitability

Why InVigor 
For over 23 years, InVigor canola hybrids have outperformed competitors in large plot replicated system trials conducted by farmers and our own demonstration strip trials across canola growing regions. We remain dedicated to providing growers with the innovative solutions needed to meet today’s challenges for growing a successful canola crop every year.

 

InVigor canola hybrids offer a wide range of maturity options, disease protection packages and other traits to improve harvest flexibility and address other serious cropping concerns.

 

InVigor canola hybrids are combined with the LibertyLink® trait that enables growers to rotate nonselective herbicides on a farm basis. LibertyLink canola has built-in resistance to Liberty® herbicide, delivering nonselective post-emergence control of broadleaf weeds and grasses, including weeds resistant to glyphosate and multiple herbicide classes.

Pod Shatter Reduction

BASF’s patented pod shatter reduction technology found in many InVigor hybrids minimizes lost yield due to environmental conditions such as late-season moisture and wind events that prematurely split pods and shell seeds.

 

A perfect blend of strength and durability, pod shatter reduction technology is designed to minimize pod drop and shatter losses. Stronger pod seams protect you from potential yield loss until you’re ready to harvest, with the flexibility to straight cut or delay swath.

Harvest Management Practices

Straight cutting and delayed swathing allows pods to fill for a longer period of time, resulting in larger seeds, a fuller pod and potential for lower green seed counts. This technology may also reduce the amount of volunteer canola in your fields by ensuring the seeds end up in your combine hopper at harvest, minimizing management challenges in future growing seasons.

 

Late swathing reduces the timing pressure of a large-acre harvest and increases combining flexibility, allowing you to leave the crop in the swath longer. Straight cutting, if timed correctly, can offer growers a yield and quality advantage by allowing them to harvest a more mature crop. Growers often harvest canola with the same swather and combine as cereal crops, with some adjustments. Growers choose late swathing to hasten the drying rate of their canola, ensure even ripening and reduce the possibility of seed losses from wind and hail.

 

InVigor L345P, L233P, 234P and 255P with patented pod shatter reduction technology from BASF give growers the flexibility to consider delayed swathing or straight cutting at harvest. The unique pod shatter reduction technology protects the seed left in the pods from pod drop and premature shatter.

LibertyLink Canola System

  • Liberty herbicide use on InVigor canola hybrids with the LibertyLink trait provides an excellent means for growers to rotate non-selective herbicide systems to effectively manage tough to control weeds.
  • Provides an alternative herbicide tolerance system
  • Unique mode of action
