Pacific Seeds release two canola hybrids bringing new benchmarks to the Australian market.July 4, 2023
Pacific Seeds new canola hybrids, Hyola Defender CT® and Hyola Continuum CL, provide Australian growers with outstanding yield performance, high disease resistance, elevated oil content, and enhanced weed control flexibility, delivering significant benefits to Integrated Weed Management (IWM) strategies. Both hybrids have shown exceptional performance results in independent industry trials over several years and provide farmers with additional tools for maximising profitability, sustainability and flexibility.
Hyola Defender CT
Featuring dual stacked herbicide tolerance, Defender CT enables growers to apply over-the-top (OTT) applications of Clearfield® and Triazine herbicides, with the added advantage of planting into fields with group 2 Imidazolinone (IMI) and group 5 Triazine herbicide soil residues.
A mid-season maturity CT hybrid, Defender CT delivers remarkable grain yield, robust plant vigour and a very high grain oil content. Defender CT performance is closely aligned with the renowned Hyola Blazer TT variety. Defender CT offers uniform flowering, manageable height for direct harvesting and a blackleg rating of “RMR” due to its distinctive tri-group resistance, ADF.
Hyola Continuum CL
Hyola Continuum CL presents growers with remarkable yield performance and enduring blackleg protection. Continuum CL enables growers to apply Clearfield herbicides OTT1, with the added advantage of planting into fields with group 2 Imidazolinone (IMI) soil residues.
An early-mid maturity Clearfield hybrid, Continuum CL provides wide environmental adaptability with excellent grain oil potential. It exhibits strong yields in target environments and demonstrates excellent adaptability to growing regions with a range of 1.25 – 5.5 t/ha. Continuum CL showcases an exceptionally high level of early plant vigour, high lodging resistance, and an outstanding blackleg rating of “R” due to its distinctive tri-group resistance, ADF.
Hyola Defender CT and Hyola Continuum CL will be commercially available in 2024. Please talk to your local Pacific Seeds Territory Manager to learn more about these exciting new products and to discuss seed orders for the 2024 cropping season.
