ROUNDUP READY CANOLA FIELD RESULTS IN CANADA

Biotechnology is re-inventing life on the farm …boosting efficiency and productivity no longer means simply using more chemicals and more man hours. Now it means employing technology. The science of genetically improving plants will give farmers a greater chance for increasing both yields and returns.

Roundup Ready Canola is like ordinary Canola varieties in every way except one: a novel genetic trait has been identified and transferred to the Canola seed, rendering them tolerant to in-crop applications of Roundup.

Roundup Ready technology:

1) Delivers outstanding control in Canola.

2) Produces the highest net returns

3) What growers report on Roundup Ready Canola

Crop Safety

Direct Seeding

“The crop safety with Roundup Ready canola was excellent. There was no damage on any of the canola - even where there were overlaps or where it would have been sprayed twice. It could tolerate two litre treatments of Roundup without any problems.”

Myron Teneycke,

Young, Saskatchewan

“Roundup Ready canola is one of the tools that has been missing to make direct seeding work effectively. We can direct seed and not lose any moisture.”

Steve Richards,

Lashburn, Saskatchewan
