WINNIPEG, Sept. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - Several new higher yielding varieties
have been added to the Clearfield® Production System for canola and are available to growers for the 2013
Joining Clearfield canola's existing high-performance lineup are Nexera Canola Hybrid 2012
CL, Nexera Canola Hybrid 2016 CL, Brett Young 5525 CL, BrettYoung 5535
CL, Pioneer 46H75 and Viterra VR 9560 CL. As with all Clearfield canola varieties, these new varieties are non-genetically modified
because they are bred through traditional methods.
"These new higher yielding varieties, coupled with the launch of ARES® herbicide, have advanced Clearfield canola growers' ability to maximize the potential of every acre," says
Harley House, Brand Manager for Clearfield Crops, BASF Canada. "There's never been a better time to grow Clearfield canola."
The new Clearfield canola varieties, combined with unprecedented weed control from BASF,
offer a range of benefits including impressive yields, improved
harvestability and reduced lodging.
In addition, ARES herbicide offers superior control of broadleaf and
grassy weeds including lamb's quarters, wild buckwheat and cleavers.
Available in a convenient liquid formulation, its wider application
window means it can be applied from the two- to seven-leaf stage on Clearfield canola.
