Truflex® canola with Roundup Ready® Technology

Is the...canola system designed for all growing conditions and regions

That...better controls a broad spectrum of tough weeds

Because...of the improved crop safety which provides greater application timing and rate flexibility

So that...growers can achieve clean fields and high yields with more confidence.

Take a tour of TruFlex® canola

We're very excited about the results of the trials and the benefits of TruFlex® canola for growers.

What is TruFlex® canola with Roundup Ready® Technology?

TruFlex canola will allow canola growers to maximise their crop's yield potential through unmatched weed control, enhance crop safety and have greater flexibility to manage weeds.

Many weeds, including the key weeds annual ryegrass and wild radish, can germinate multiple times and these subsequent germinations can occur outside the current window of application of Roundup Ready brand herbicides. TruFlex canola is the second-generation weed control product offering growers greater flexibility through an extended 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.

 

TruFlex canola and Roundup Ready canola application rates

TruFlex canola will provide growers with the option to apply Roundup Ready Herbicide with PLANTSHIELD by Monsanto at higher rates for enhanced weed control from emergence to first flower (50% of plants have one flower).

 

How TruFlex Canola Works

TruFlex canola builds on the technology of Roundup Ready canola. It contains the same CP4 EPSPS gene but the gene expression is enhanced by the addition of a new promoter sequence. This gives increased tolerance to glyphosate and, as a result, provides canola growers greater flexibility with glyphosate applications.
