2022 Canola Seed Treatments


You can add both Fortenza® Advanced and Recover® PO4 to a base treatment of Helix® Saltro®. Not certain what to choose? Here’s a more in-depth look at the benefits of the new Helix Saltro, and Fortenza Advanced. Recover PO4 is a phosphate-solubilizing bacteria (Penicillium bilaii) – which is the same active ingredient as in JumpStart®. Recover PO4 increases the availability of soil and fertilizer phosphorous. It also enhances early vigour, increases root growth, and leaf surface area and comes in a convenient-to-use liquid formulation.


BUTEO™ start offers rapid uptake, even in drier conditions, which means powerful protection against flea beetle feeding pressure for a strong plant right from the start. It is paired with Prosper® Evergol® which has a fungicide package with 4 different active ingredients and an insecticide for additional flea beetle control.  Add Fortenza® to this combo for control of cutworms.

While many of his farmer friends suffered through a devastating growing season due to this summer’s extreme heat and dangerously low precipitation levels, Friesen was able to grow a decent crop of soybeans, canola and wheat.
