Unlock the Nutrients in Your Soil

Soil fertility and fertilizer management directly influence yield and quality in canola. To avoid deficiencies, sulphur application should be based on the uptake needs of the crop and the anticipated yield. Canola also has a high requirement for boron. Like sulphate, boron is mobile in the soil and can move out of the root zone with excessive rainfall or irrigation, leading to deficiencies. Supply your canola crop with TIGER 90CR®, TIGER XP, or TIGER Boron 2%® to unlock better yields and ROI. >> Learn more

Group 2+4 resistant kochia confirmed in Saskatchewan

Kochia is predisposed to develop herbicide resistance because it produces 15,000 to 25,000 seeds per plant and spreads extensively when blown on the wind. As a result, when a kochia plant is selected for resistance, it can quickly multiply and spread the resistance to other fields. Additionally, kochia outcrosses and pollen flow from plant to plant can further spread resistance. » Read more...
