What's New at BrettYoung

BrettYoung™ has launched two new canola hybrids. BY 6204TF, equipped with the TruFlex™ canola system with Roundup Ready® Technology, features top-end yield performance (102%*) and mid-maturity (+0.1 days*), along with the flexibility of the TruFlex Weed Control system. We’ve also expanded our Clearfield® canola portfolio with BY 5125CL, an earlier maturing (+0.4 days*) and higher-yielding (106%*) sister variety to our very popular 5545 CL variety. Both of these new varieties carry first-generation Clubroot resistance and feature DefendR®-rated Blackleg genetics, meaning you get industry-leading multi-genic Blackleg protection with a strong R rating. Peace of mind with the yield performance you come to expect with BrettYoung canola varieties.

Our Elite® soybean lineup continues to provide growers with a diverse range of products that are tailored to fit the specific needs of most farms, most notably being Amirani R2, which delivers excellent yield performance and ultra-early maturity (000.5 RM). Amirani R2 allows growers in all geographies to harvest earlier while maintaining excellent yield potential and is ideal for growers in ultra-early maturity zones looking for a high-performance variety.

2020 marks the launch of an exciting partnership for BrettYoung. We have united with Rizobacter, a world-leading agricultural microbiology company, to bring useful, new inoculant technologies to Western Canada. This includes Osmium™ Pea/Lentil and Osmium™ Chickpea, a line of liquid inoculants for pea, lentil and chickpea growers that features Osmo Protector Technology for a new level of performance in on-seed life and seed treatment compatibility. Signum®, a new liquid soybean inoculant, includes the same benefits plus Bio-Inducer Technology to promote earlier nodulation and increased yield potential. Speak with your BrettYoung representative to learn more about why these technologies should be included in your 2021 pulse and soybean seeding plans.

Lastly, we’re proud to announce BrettYoung has earned the designation as one of “Canada’s Best Managed Companies” designation for the third consecutive year. The award continues to validate all the hard work the entire BrettYoung team does to serve the needs of our amazing customers. It also acknowledges the world-class suppliers who are an integral part of the value we deliver to the field. We especially thank all our customers who choose to do business with BrettYoung as part of your work in feeding the world.

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.
