With the rise in acres of glyphosate-resistant soybeans and corn across the prairie regions of the U.S. and Canada there is a growing thirst for additional options in canola traits. At least this is what Cibus is banking on. 

Sulfonylurea-tolerant (SU) canola has been approved in the U.S. but the varieties are still waiting for registration in Canada.

At the recent Montana Grain Growers conference in Great Falls, Shaun caught up with James Radke of Cibus to get an update on SU canola getting registration in Canada, and how the new trait might be of keen interest to canola growers on both sides of the border. Shaun also asks Jim if the registration system in Canada is to blame for the product not being available in Canada.
