2014 BCTs

BrettYoung Comparison Trials (BCT) are a key step in the building of our canola product line up. The trials are the final proving ground for new potential products relative to our current and industry standard products. Each site is a field scale, farmer managed, replicated field trial. All sites are managed by an independent company in cooperation with the local producer.

In 2014 we are evaluating 2 additions to our product portfolio. We are targeting yield improvement and earlier maturity relative to 6060 RR. These experimentals have shown good yield performance  in combination with both earlier and similar maturities in our current portfolio in registration trials.

Contact your local BrettYoung Regional Account Manager for an opportunity to visit one of the sites.
