Make every plant count.

Extensive research conducted by BASF’s Agronomic Excellence team shows that targeting a plant population of 5-7 plants/ft2 can help you optimize the yield, performance and consistency of your InVigor® hybrid canola. Just a few adjustments to your current practices, such as calibrating your seeding rate based on Thousand Seed Weight (TSW) and adjusting for survivability, can help ensure that every plant counts at harvest.

Benefits of a targeted plant population of 5 to 7 plants/ft2

  • Improved seedbed utilization
  • More efficient use of available resources
  • Increased plant productivity and yield performance
  • Improved lodging resistance and lower sclerotinia incidence
  • More even maturity and uniform plant structure
  • Improved weed control

Diseases and Pests

Stay on top of clubroot.

Clubroot continues to spread with two new counties in Alberta recently added to the list of infected areas, and documented disease expansion across the Prairies. There are 17 known clubroot pathotypes and staying ahead of them is key. The first line of defense is planting clubroot resistant varieties. UFA has a wide selection of clubroot resistant canola varieties, including LibertyLink®, Roundup Ready® and other traits like suitability for straight cutting, to help you manage current clubroot acres that you may have. Plus, our CAMs are here to help with advice about how to keep clubroot out of clean fields, such as scouting, soil management and equipment checks from field to field.

Early season insects: know your enemy.

Flea beetle and cutworm: these two are the biggest early season insect threats to canola stand establishment. The first proactive step you can take to protect your crop is to order your canola seed with an insecticidal seed treatment.

Ask us about:

  • Lumiderm™ for excellent protection against flea beetles and cutworms. Lumiderm is available on InVigor® andBrevant™ Seeds canola varieties.
  • New Fortenza® Advanced offers advanced, industry-leading control of striped and crucifer flea beetles, as well as cutworms. With two insecticidal actives, Fortenza Advanced reduces the likelihood of having to spray afoliar insecticide early in the season.

FLEA BEETLE

  • Feed on cotyledons from April to July
  • Scout frequently; use flags to mark scouting locations
  • Check stems as well as leaves
  • Spray when feeding damage reaches 25% of leaf area

CUTWORM

  • Scout for the first three weeks after emergence early in the morning or late in the day
  • Look for holes and notches in leaves, plants that are wilting or fallen over, scout at the edge of bare patches
