Bayer Canola Hybrid Development Agronomist Jorden Varberg says Bayer’s new canola varieties focus on profitability for farmers. “It has the pod shatter trait as well as the club root resistance trait in it. So it looks like it will be a good product for the northern areas and North Dakota as well as western North Dakota.” Club root resistance is also another important trait. “Club root is moving.
