Australian canola growers will be able to claim $100 cashback on every bag of selected Hyola new technology hybrids they purchase in the coming season.
Advanta Seeds canola business manager Justin Kudnig said the cashback offer was designed to both reward customers and add value to the higher gross returns new technology hybrids can produce compared with open pollinated (OP) canola.
“The offer is available to canola growers who purchase Hyola 600RR or Hyola 725RT with selected seed treatments for the 2017 cropping season,” he said.
“These hybrids have shown impressive yields, gross returns and improved weed control when compared to some OP TT varieties, while also taking into account the higher hybrid seed price.”
In addition to the yield and oil advantages hybrids can bring, Mr Kudnig said these new herbicide tolerant hybrids offer more options in the cropping rotations, improving overall IWM system profitability.
“In addition to the herbicide technology employed in many canola hybrids, the higher biomass allows for enhanced weed competitiveness up to 50 per cent higher compared to OP TT varieties, meaning a cleaner paddock and lower weed burden for the following rotation.”
Mr Kudnig said research suggested that these hybrids showed adaptability with early sowing opportunities across medium-high to high rainfall districts across southern Australia, and that growers could increase their gross returns per hectare by selecting key hybrid varieties.
“Naturally it is up to each grower and their consultants to decide which technology group fits best with their integrated weed management plans.”
