The 2024 InVigor® hybrid canola lineup doesn't compromise when it comes to the potential performance it brings to your fields. With every hybrid in our lineup containing patented Pod Shatter Reduction technology and most with clubroot-resistant genetics, you can rely on protection and flexibility in every field.
For 27 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 non-selective herbicides on a farm basis. LibertyLink canola partners with Liberty herbicide to deliver non-selective post-emergence control of broadleaf weeds and grasses, including weeds resistant to glyphosate and multiple herbicide classes.
Looking for a high-yielding hybrid in the mid to long growing areas? InVigor L350PC has it all. Our highest-yielding hybrid in our trials to date, this hybrid combines standability, first-generation clubroot resistance1 and our patented Pod Shatter Reduction technology. It is a great fit for grower who irrigate or when lodging is a concern.
InVigor Choice LR354PC offers growers high yield potential and great standability; with the added flexibility of harnessing both the LibertyLink® technology system and TruFlex® canola with Roundup Ready® Technology.
InVigor L343PC is a go-to choice when you want high yield potential in areas where you need second-generation clubroot resistance.1 With patented Pod Shatter Reduction, this hybrid offers improved standability and yield potential over InVigor L234PC.
We recommend growing InVigor L343PC in clubroot-affected areas after two cycles of growing first-generation clubroot-resistant hybrids or when clubroot symptoms appear in first-generation clubroot-resistant hybrids.
InVigor L340PC has it all – high yield, Pod Shatter Reduction, first-generation clubroot resistance1 and strong standability. It is a great fit for growers who irrigate or when lodging is a concern.
InVigor L345PC performed very well in our 2021 and 2022 Demonstration Strip Trials. You can enhance the standability of InVigor L345PC by avoiding short rotations, fields with high volunteer canola populations, high levels of fertility or under irrigation.
InVigor Choice hybrid with Pod Shatter Reduction and first-generation clubroot resistance.1 InVigor Choice LR344PC2 features both the LibertyLink technology system and TruFlex® canola with Roundup Ready® Technology. Perfect for growers looking to combine high yield potential InVigor canola genetics with the flexibility of Liberty® herbicide or Roundup® herbicide applications.
InVigor L233P has been grown on more acres than any other InVigor canola hybrid in US spring canola areas. Featuring patented Pod Shatter Reduction technology, this early-maturing, high-yielding hybrid provides the harvest flexibility you can count on.
1 To predominant clubroot pathotypes found in Canada at the time of registration. InVigor L350PC, InVigor Choice LR354PC, InVigor L340PC, InVigor Choice LR344PC and InVigor L345PC share the same first-generation clubroot resistance profile. InVigor L343PC has this resistance profile plus it contains second-generation multigenic clubroot resistance to additional clubroot pathotypes to help combat evolving clubroot pathotypes.

Providing growers with the option to straight cut or delay swath their canola without sacrificing yield potential, the patented Pod Shatter Reduction technology of InVigor hybrid canola continues to revolutionize the way canola growers approach their entire season.
We have a wide selection of InVigor® canola hybrids with patented Pod Shatter Reduction technology from BASF, including InVigor L350PC, InVigor Choice LR354PC, InVigor L343PC, InVigor L340PC, InVigor L345PC, InVigor Choice LR344PC and InVigor L233P. This trait gives growers the flexibility to consider delayed swathing or straight cutting at harvest.
Both options mean pods will fill for a longer period, resulting in larger seeds, a fuller pod and the potential for lower green seed counts. In short, better overall results.
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:
Since their launch, InVigor canola hybrids with clubroot resistance have been planted on over 28 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 2024, US growers can choose from six InVigor clubroot-resistant hybrids – all of which include our patented Pod Shatter Reduction technology.
InVigor L350PC, InVigor Choice LR354PC, InVigor L340PC, InVigor L345PC and InVigor Choice LR344PC, all contain the same first-generation clubroot resistance genetics. InVigor L343PC contains this resistance profile plus second-generation clubroot resistance to additional emerging clubroot pathotypes to help defend against the ever-evolving pathogen.

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 canola hybrids that contain the “P” in their name, including InVigor L350PC, InVigor Choice LR354PC, InVigor L343PC, InVigor L340PC, InVigor L345PC, InVigor Choice LR344PC and InVigor L233P all come with the patented Pod Shatter Reduction technology from BASF. This gives growers the flexibility to consider delayed swathing or straight cutting at harvest. Both options mean pods will fill for a longer period, resulting in larger seeds, a fuller pod and the potential for lower green seed counts. In short, better overall results.
