With new canola seed hybrids and traits available for the 2014 season, farmers in North Dakota, Montana and Minnesota have more reasons to consider growing the crop.

While attending the KMOT Ag Expo in Minot, N.D., farmers can learn about several new hybrids and how they can fit into their operations' agronomic and profitability strategies at an Unlocking New Canola Opportunities session, hosted by Bayer CropScience.

Each 30-minute session will provide the same information and be held in the meeting room to the north of Titan Machinery Hall and west of United Agronomy Hall. The schedule is:

•3 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 29;
•3 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 30; and
•10 a.m. on Friday, Jan 31.

For 2014, Bayer CropScience has three new InVigor® canola hybrids. These new hybrids provide canola farmers across the northern tier of the United States more options to overcome growing and harvesting challenges, fight disease pressure, and improve profitability:

•New L140P is the industry's first hybrid with pod shatter tolerance,
•New L160S is the first InVigor hybrid with sclerotinia tolerance, and
•New L252 is the first InVigor hybrid with high classic canola oil content.

At the Unlocking New Canola Opportunities sessions, farmers will get their first in-depth introduction to the pod shatter tolerance trait. The sessions will also cover topics such as which hybrids perform optimally for each growing region, how farmers can utilize each hybrid for different profitability strategies and how to fit each hybrid into an operation's overall cropping system.
