Reduce pod shatter.
Increase harvest flexibility.

Giving growers the ability to straight cut or delay swath canola without sacrificing yield potential, the patented Pod Shatter Reduction technology from InVigor® hybrid canola continues to revolutionize the way canola growers approach their entire season.

The patented Pod Shatter Reduction trait naturally strengthens pod seams to give the plants excellent pod drop characteristics and safely retain the seeds in the pod until you are ready to harvest. These yield-enhancing properties can result in a fuller pod, larger seeds and lower green seed counts.

Pod Shatter Reduction technology in the field.

Take a virtual tour to see what makes the patented Pod Shatter Reduction technology from InVigor special.

The Pod Shatter Reduction advantage.

With close to 40%* of Canadian canola acres being straight cut at harvest, we predict this number will hit 50% by 2020. The patented Pod Shatter Reduction technology continues to push this number higher with the benefits it provides:

  • Minimize the impact of adverse late-season weather and wind events
  • Enable growers to straight cut canola with reduced risk and no yield repercussions
  • Longer pod fill, producing larger, more mature seeds (lower green seed count)
  • Reduce harvest losses and future volunteer canola
  • Simplify harvest logistics, providing greater flexibility when you need it most

*2018 Stratus Market Research.

BASF predicts 50% of Canadian canola acres will be straight cut by 2020.

Sharpen your straight cut.

  • Monitor seeding rate to achieve desired target plant population. Growers should use adequate seeding rates to ensure a uniform stand, which in turn allows the field to mature evenly
  • Eliminate weeds. Clean fields are easier to straight cut. Weeds, when still green can cause both harvest and storage issues
  • Be on the lookout for green plant material. Monitor your harvested canola seed even if it comes off dry as there is a greater chance of plant material making it into the sample
  • Maintain appropriate combine and reel speeds. You must re-evaluate all of your combine settings when straight cutting, which could involve slower harvest speeds. If you are using a reel, ensure the speed of the reel matches the speed of your combine
  • Consider using a pre-harvest application of Heat® LQ herbicide + glyphosate to reduce green material and allow the crop to dry down more evenly
