Recover PO4 is a seed-applied, biological phosphate solubilizer for most field crops in a convenient, ready-to-use liquid formulation. Recover PO4 enhances your crop's early vigour, increases root growth and expands leaf surface area. Learn more about the benefits of Recover PO4 here.

Fortenza Advanced seed treatment provides leading control of cutworms.

Cutworms can devastate a canola crop. The pest will cut seedlings off at the soil surface, or just below. Cutworms tend to be nocturnal, so until the introduction of Fortenza Advanced, the most effective management solution was to spray at night when the highest incidence of feeding occurs. By managing cutworms early with Fortenza Advanced, a grower can minimize the need to spray and improve efficiency during a very busy time of the year.

Fortenza Advanced is a seed-applied insecticide, and another tool that can be used in conjunction with foliar products as part of a grower’s cutworm management strategy.

Cutworm Pressure in Waldheim, SK 2015: The red icons on the image above represent canola that was treated with Fortenza and a base fungicide treatment. All others did not receive a Fortenza treatment. The trial was intended to evaluate activity on flea beetles. It was determined that the damage evidenced was due to cutworms.

Harvest Timing

Posted: Aug 16, 2022

If you don’t already have crops being harvested, you’re likely keeping a close eye on your fields to decide when to start. Just like any other crop, timing of when you start harvesting your canola can have big impacts on yield and quality, here are a few things to keep in mind as you watch your crops progress this fall.

The first decision to make is whether you will be harvesting or swathing a crop. This is largely influenced by hybrid– if you have seeded canola with pod shatter protection, such as a Pod DefendR hybrid, you may be able to leave these fields out to straight cut.

Scouting For Blackleg in Canola

Posted: Aug 16, 2022

Disease surveying in the fall is one of those tasks many of us drag our feet on. Nothing can be done that late in the season to protect the crop from damage, so why survey? The value of surveying is to assess your current management practices and hybrid selections to help make better-informed decisions that will maximize yield potential in future years.

For a disease like blackleg, the canola crop may not show visible signs of damage. Only after disease surveying may the true level of blackleg damage be determined, along with the bushels lost to the disease.
