Corteva Agriscience made their Ag In Motion debut last week in Saskatoon, Sask.

Farms.com spoke with Corteva Agriscience about their brand and their two new LibertyLink® canola hybrids.

Corteva Agriscience is a combination of Dow AgroSciences, Pioneer, and DuPont Crop Protection and became a publicly traded company on June 3 of this year. 

Loralee Orr, marketing communications lead, told Farms.com about Corteva’s vision.

“All that you have come to experience with those companies has come together and become Corteva,” Orr said.

“Our purpose is to enrich the lives of those who produce and those who consume, ensuring progress for generations to come.”

Corteva showed off two of their new LibertyLink® hybrids of canola: B3010M from Brevant™ seeds and P501L from Pioneer® brand seeds. 

“Farmers will benefit from the combination of improved yield, agronomic traits and disease packages, and proven weed control these hybrids have to offer,” Bryce Eger, president, Corteva Canada, said in a recent release.

LibertyLink® is a trait which provides the crop with resistance to Liberty herbicides or approved glufosinate-ammonium herbicide products. Corteva hybrids also offer Protector® traits with clubroot resistance and flexibility during harvest.

Farms.com spoke with Ellis Clayton, technical product manager for Corteva Agriscience, about what makes these hybrids an effective solution for producers.

“B3010M is a brand-new HarvestMax™ product featuring industry-leading clubroot resistance with high yield potential,” Clayton told Farms.com

The HarvestMax™ trait provides benefits like a wider window for swathing and the option to straight cut with reduced shatter.  

Pioneer’s P501L offers exceptional yield with Pioneer Protector Clubroot, excellent early growth and is resistance to tough diseases including  clubroot, blackleg, and Fusarium wilt.
