Glyphosate Tolerant Canola to be Released in Canada

October 31, 2012

Due to increasing grower and market needs for canola in Canada, Syngenta announced that they will employ a canola seed program for the country. The first canola variety that they will introduce is SY4135, a glyphosate tolerant canola variety, which will be out in the fall of 2013 for the 2014 growing season. Future varieties will also be developed using technologies that would meet the needs of the growers such as strong yield and weed control.
