InVigor L234PC

InVigor L234PC boasts the patented Pod Shatter Reduction technology you trust along with second-generation clubroot resistance to additional emerging clubroot pathotypes to help combat the ever-evolving clubroot pathogen. Second-generation clubroot resistance is designed to combat clubroot in fields that still show signs of the disease or are starting to show signs, despite seeding a first-generation clubroot-resistant hybrid as part of an integrated management plan. Clubroot populations in the field can evolve or shift to new pathotypes that current resistant hybrids may be susceptible to. To maximize the durability of genetic resistance in canola hybrids, use an integrated pest management strategy that includes extending rotations in areas where clubroot is a concern.

All eight hybrids also exhibit strong genetic resistance to pod drop. 

Clubroot Resistance

Clubroot is a constantly evolving disease in canola. As such, management practices need to evolve alongside the disease to minimize its impact today, as well as in the future. Sustainability of the US canola production industry guides our position on how to best manage clubroot and how we recommend deploying clubroot-resistant genetics. With all of this in mind, growers should implement an integrated pest management (IPM) strategy that includes:

 

  • Canola rotation of a minimum of once every three years
  • Taking sanitation steps to limit the movement of infected soil
  • Controlling volunteer canola and other brassica weeds that can act as hosts for the disease
  • Utilizing patch management to limit the movement of clubroot on your farm
  • Scouting to identify the presence of the disease
  • Clubroot-resistant genetics are only effective as a sustainable practice as part of an IPM strategy and should not be relied upon alone

 

Since their launch, InVigor canola hybrids with clubroot resistance have been planted on over 19 million acres across Canada, where the clubroot disease pressure is much higher due to tighter rotations. That’s more than any other seed company*. For 2022, US growers can choose from five InVigor clubroot-resistant hybrids – all of which include our patented Pod Shatter Reduction technology.

 

Our new 300 series hybrid, InVigor L343PC, as well as InVigor 340PC, InVigor L345PC, InVigor Choice LR344PC and InVigor L255PC, all contain the same first-generation clubroot resistance genetics. InVigor L343PC and InVigor L234PC contain this resistance profile plus they contain second-generation clubroot resistance to additional emerging clubroot pathotypes to help defend against the ever-evolving pathogen. 

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.

 

Our new 300 series hybrid, InVigor L343PC, as well as InVigor 340PC, InVigor L345PC, InVigor Choice LR344PC, InVigor L357P, InVigor L233P, InVigor L255PC and InVigor L234PC 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.
