I have been boasting about 46H75 all year. Most of the results are IN and yields backed up what I have been saying. This hybrid performed great and definitely deserves a chance to be on your farm. DuPont Pioneer has a great canola lineup. 45H29 is a yield leader especially in the glyphosate segment. Our Sclerotinia Protector products are the real deal for greatly reducing disease incidence and severity and 45H73 has been a leader in the Clearfield segment the past few years.
With soybeans and corn becoming staple parts of our rotations, a big chunk of our canola products have been taken out of the equation strictly on account of herbicide systems.
46H75 is a game changer for us. 46H75’s yield ,which is the number one factor for growers when choosing a canola hybrid, is right there or better than leading hybrids on the market. Glufosinate tolerant canola is no longer the default option for corn and soybean growers. 46H75 agronomics are not sacrificed for outstanding yield.
Some Key Strengths of 46H75
-Very good early growth
-Handled early cool wet conditions extremely well
-Mid to Tall plant that stands very well, nice lean to it in fact one grower straight cut it with very good results
-2 days later maturity than checks to spread out canola swathing time
-R rated for Blackleg and Fusarium Wilt
-Clearfield system offers excellent weed control options
Some Yields results from some of my growers.
Tri-Man Farms in Domain 55 bus/ac
Darren Enns in Domain 58 bus/ac (straight cut)
Rick Fossay in Starbuck 55 bus/ac
Erb Farms Oak Bluff 57 bus/ac
Bossuyt Bros in Oak Bluff had wild life damage (geese) and still pulled off 45 bus/ac
Field in Sanford 57 bus/ac
Field in Starbuck 52 bus/ac
These are NOT yield or test strips! These are whole field or farm yields!
When deciding on canola hybrids for 2014, 46H75 should be included in the discussion.

Plot Tour and cowgirl boots
Derek Erb Seeds is having a soybean and corn plot tour September 19th . Click here for details derek-erb-seeds-corn-and-soybean-plot-tour
Harvest has been awesome so far and hopefully we can get started on soybeans in the next 7-10 days and possibly corn by beginning of October.
Kids come up with the darndest things, Erin stopped by the farm with the kids about a week ago in the middle of the heat wave, Grace our 4 year old was wearing her new cowgirl boots. I said “Grace, I love your new boots” to which she responded “Thanks, my Mom says I can cook in them later. They are my new cooking boots”. I was puzzled and asked Erin what the heck Grace was talking about. Erin had no idea what she meant. However Maggie our older daughter said “I know what she means, when Grace put her boots on this morning Mom told her it was going to get hot out later and she was going to “cook” in those boots”. It doesn’t get much better than that!
