What is TruFlex® canola with Roundup Ready® Technology?

TruFlex canola is Monsanto’s second-generation weed control trait offering growers greater flexibility through an extended glyphosate application window up to first flower and an opportunity to apply Roundup Ready® Herbicide with PLANTSHIELD® by Monsanto at higher rates for enhanced weed control.

 

 

One of the smartest routes to high yield potential is through effective weed control.

Here’s how TruFlex® canola with Roundup Ready® Technology can help make it happen:

 

WEED CONTROL GROWERS CAN RELY ON
TruFlex® canola with Roundup Ready® Technology and Roundup Ready® Herbicide with PLANTSHIELD® by Monsanto were designed to work with each other. This combination provides you with the tools you need to effectively control weeds in our canola fields.

 

FLEXIBILITY IN SPRAY RATES AND TIMING
TruFlex canola gives you increased weed control flexibility. The window of application for Roundup Ready Herbicide with PLANTSHIELD by Monsanto will extend past the six-leaf stage to first flower. From emergence to first flower either apply three applications at the current rate of 0.9 kg/ha or apply two higher rates of 1.3 kg/ha.


SUPERIOR YIELD POTENTIAL
New advances in trait technology will help enable better weed control and crop safety compared to Roundup Ready® canola. It's a combination that could give you the opportunity to see a lot more yield potential at harvest time.

 

 EXTENDED SPRAY WINDOW - EMERGENCE TO FIRST FLOWER

The window of application for Roundup Ready Herbicide with PLANTSHIELD by Monsanto will extend past the six-leaf stage all the way to first flower.

TruFlex® canola with Roundup Ready® Technology is not commercially available but current plans are to commercialise for the 2019 growing season. If approvals are in place, there will be a limited quantity of seed available. Each seed company is conducting bulk-up activities so we encourage growers to express their interest in TruFlex canola to their seed company and we will keep growers and seed companies informed about when it becomes commercially available. The information presented herein shall not be construed as an offer to sell.
