BASF acknowledges "slow emergence" issue with some canola seed


BASF says it is investigating an issue with the performance of some InVigor canola seed in Western Canada.

The company issued a statement on Thursday saying it “has been made aware that certain InVigor canola hybrids may be experiencing slow emergence in select geographies…”

“We have a dedicated team examining possible contributing factors,” the company said.

InVigor varieties account for the majority of Canadian canola acres.

The company also debuted a new seed treatment, called Vercoras, on a portion of InVigor seed in 2022.

BASF says it will provide an update on its “review” as soon as possible.

More to come.
