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.
