Aggressive control of tough weeds We have a message for cleavers, foxtail barley, wild buckwheat and dandelions: TruFlex canola with Roundup Ready® Technology will be coming for you. TruFlex canola is our next-generation canola trait. It’s part of a system enabling a broader pesticide application window and application rate than our current technology, so your canola can perform the way it was bred to.

TruFlex canola with Roundup Ready Technology is not yet commercially available. This information is provided for informational purposes only, in advance of commercialization.
Get Improved Weed Control See How It Works

Dominate Your Field

One of the smartest routes to high yield potential is through effective weed control – but you already know that. Here’s how TruFlex canola with
Roundup Ready® Technology can help make it happen:

Improved control of tough weeds


The flexibility of the TruFlex canola system will allow for the control of harder-to-kill weeds like cleavers, foxtail barley and wild buckwheat. It also will help enable season-long dandelion control.

Flexibility in spray rates and timing


TruFlex canola will allow for a wider pesticide application window than our current technology. If weather or a late flush of weeds delays your spray date, no problem – you will be able to spray up to first flower when applying sequential rates of 0.67 L/ac. The TruFlex canola system will also enable flexibility with your Roundup WeatherMAX® herbicide application rate to help get the job done.

Higher yield potential through genetics and crop safety


New genetics have packed a lot of yield potential into each TruFlex canola seed. New advances in trait technology will enable better weed control and crop safety compared to Genuity® Roundup Ready® canola. It's a combination that could give you the opportunity to see a lot more yield potential pass through the combine at harvest time.

IMPROVED WEED CONTROL

The TruFlex canola with Roundup Ready® Technology system will help enable you to control both annual weeds and tough-to-control perennials:

  • Dandelions: Will help enable season-long control
  • Foxtail barley: Will allow for 99% control
  • Wild buckwheat: Will allow for control of large plants past the six-leaf stage with Roundup WeatherMAX®
    herbicide at a rate of approximately 1 L/ac and large buckwheat (past six-leaf) at a rate of 1.33 L/ac

Control 24 additional weed species with TruFlex canola with Roundup Ready® Technology

Being able to apply Roundup WeatherMAX® herbicide in-crop at 1.33 L/ac for a single application or 0.67 L/ac for two applications will allow for the control of 24 additional weed species compared to the Genuity® Roundup Ready® canola system, including yellow foxtail, biennial wormwood and common milkweed.

TruFlex canola with Roundup Ready Technology is not yet commercially available.


Flexibility to Spray Rates and Timing

Get up to 10-14 more spray days at in-crop timing

The TruFlex canola with Roundup Ready® Technology system will enable a window of Roundup WeatherMAX® herbicide application that extends past the six-leaf stage all the way to the first flower when applying sequential rates of 0.67 L/ac. That gives you 10-14 more spray days than our current technology.

Choose the rate you need for your weed spectrum

The TruFlex canola system will enable the application of Roundup WeatherMAX® herbicide in-crop at 1.33 L/ac for a single application or 0.67 L/ac for two applications, so you can choose the ideal rate for the unique weed challenges on your farm.

Higher Yield Potential

Higher yield potential through
genetics and crop safety

  • We conducted field trials to test potential crop injury from spraying off-label on Genuity® Roundup Ready® canola. Our research confirmed that spraying canola above the recommended rates or outside the application window was costing farmers three bushels per acre or more in yield*.

  • TruFlex canola with Roundup Ready® Technology is built on new genetics to deliver higher yield potential compared to our current technology. Protecting that potential requires not only effective weed control, but crop safety. Because you will be able to apply Roundup Ready WeatherMax® herbicide up to its first flower with TruFlex canola when applying sequential rates of 0.67 L/ac, you will have more flexibility to manage your in-crop applications.

The Sources of the Yield Potential for TruFlex Canola with Roundup Ready® Technology



  • Elite Germplasm: The TruFlex canola trait will be available in elite germplasm that has been bred to deliver products with agronomic benefits that Canada's canola farmers need.

  • Crop Safety: The TruFlex canola system will allow for the application of higher rates of Roundup WeatherMAX® herbicide. The system will help minimize yield penalty.
