Clubroot resistant



Clubroot resistant hybrids.

After years of record-setting canola acres, many growers face challenges as a consequence of tight canola rotations. Clubroot is a serious disease that can cause major yield loss. Putting an integrated pest management (IPM) plan in place is the first step when confronted or concerned with clubroot. Using a hybrid with built-in resistance is one tool available to help manage the disease. InVigor clubroot resistant hybrids have all been developed to be resistant to the most predominant clubroot pathotypes found in Canada at the time of their registration. InVigor Health L258HPC, InVigor L255PC, InVigor L135C and InVigor L241C all contain the same clubroot resistance profile. The NEW InVigor L234PC contains this resistance profile, plus a 2nd generation multi-genetic clubroot resistance to additional clubroot pathotypes to help combat evolving clubroot pathotypes.


InVigor L241C

With InVigor L241C, you can expect strong standability and higher yields from this mid-maturing hybrid that’s well suited to all clubroot-affected regions of Western Canada. InVigor L241C won the 2016 Canola 100 contest with yield of 81.43 bu./ac. and won the 2017 InVigor Clubroot Yield DSTs.

InVigor Yield Results

InVigor Innovation

InVigor is the result of constantly improving innovative seed genetics and agronomic potential. From its humble beginnings of covering 20,000 acres in Canada in 1997, InVigor has grown to represent over half of the canola acres in Canada as the go-to canola hybrids growers trust.

You work relentlessly to make the most of your acres, so we’re continually working on providing you with superior hybrids; continually striving to minimize your risk and increase your yield.

Reducing pod shatter.
How we harvest our canola has seen a dramatic change in recent times. Swathing is losing ground to straight cutting in terms of harvesting technique. BASF is predicting that as much as 40% to 50% of canola in Western Canada will be straight cut by 2020.

How you harvest is determined by a number of factors. While there are many potential benefits to straight cutting or delayed swathing, pod shatter reduction technology gives you the added freedom and flexibility of deciding how to best harvest your crop.

The unique patented Pod Shatter Reduction technology of select InVigor canola hybrids will continue to allow growers to take advantage of straight cutting and its potential yield-enhancing qualities. This technology works by allowing the pods to fill for a longer period of time, resulting in a fuller pod, larger seeds and lower green seed counts. This technology may also minimize management challenges in future years by reducing the amount of volunteer canola in fields by ensuring seeds end up in your bin.
Tips for straight cutting.
  • Seeding rate: An even plant population ensures a uniform stand, resulting in even maturation of fields.
  • Hybrid selection: Choosing hybrids that were designed to be straight cut, such as InVigor L140P, InVigor L234PC, InVigor L233P and InVigor L255PC, can increase harvest potential in your crops.
  • Weed control: Weeds, especially ones that are still green, make straight cutting more of an issue while harvesting, as well as in storage.
  • Disease control: Increased shattering is a potential consequence of diseases such as scletotinia and alternaria black spot, resulting in uneven maturity.
  • Weather conditions: Cooler, overcast days are optimal for straight cutting to minimize shattering.
  • Combine and reel speed: Straight cutting requires you to re-evaluate your combine settings, which typically involves slower harvest speeds. Ensure the speed of the reel matches your combine speed if using a reel.
  • Monitor for green material: There is a higher probability of plant material making it into the sample with straight cutting, so ensure you monitor your harvested canola seed.
Clubroot management with InVigor.
Clubroot has the potential to significantly lower yield in canola. Incorporating a hybrid with clubroot resistance into your integrated management practices is an excellent tool to aid in disease management.

InVigor L255PC, InVigor L234PC and InVigor L241C hybrids have been developed to be resistant to the predominant clubroot pathotypes in Canadian canola fields.

New clubroot pathotypes may become dominant in clubroot populations if canola hybrids with similar resistance profiles are repeatedly employed in the field. To prolong the value of resistant hybrids, BASF suggests employing hybrids as a part of a larger integrated strategy to prevent or manage clubroot.
Controlling volunteer canola.
Cross pollination in canola fields means volunteer canola can contain herbicide-tolerant traits. At BASF, we provide you with multiple control options for these herbicide-resistant volunteer canola varieties.
