Volunteer canola is a growing concern. Tighter rotations and increasingly common prairie wind events have lead to massive volunteer canola seed deposits across the Canadian Prairies. 

The problem with volunteer canola

Volunteer canola is no ordinary weed. Unchecked it has the potential to contaminate your new canola crop, spread disease and alter the desired oil content and profile of your harvested crop. But what really makes volunteer canola so hazardous is the high probability that it carries a genetic tolerance to one or more herbicide technologies (LibertyLink®, Genuity®, Roundup Ready® and/or Clearfield) making it very difficult to control.

This can leave you with a poor-performing, lower-quality crop, which can compromise your return on investment.

A fresh start

Bayer CropScience is pleased to announce that Pardner® herbicide is now registered as a pre-season, tank-mix partner with Roundup WeatherMAX® herbicide and other similar glyphosate technologies for control of all volunteer canola, even if they're resistant to other herbicide groups.

Keep volunteer canola out of your canola.
