Just remember, patience will pay off. » Learn more

Nutrient requirements and Prairie soils

Managing phosphorus, potassium and sulphur is an important part of optimizing cereal crop yields.

Pre-seed weed control 101

After a long winter, you’re eager to start seeding. But to set yourself up for a successful canola harvest you should be thinking about pre-seed weed control.

To reduce competition from weeds, it’s best to start early. A pre-seed burn-off can help control invasive annual weeds, especially during a warm and wet spring when weeds tend to grow faster.

Protect your canola from the start with powerful tools, such as Prospect, a new pre-seed herbicide from Corteva Agriscience. Tank mixed with glyphosate, it provides enhanced control on weeds such as cleavers, hemp-nettle and narrow-leaved hawk’s beard. Visit to learn more.
