THE LIBERTYLINK TRAIT IN CANOLA

s InVigor hybrids carry the LibertyLink trait, which provides built-in tolerance to Liberty herbicide. s InVigor canola hybrids with the LibertyLink trait are top performers, known for outstanding yield and strong early season growth. They consistently deliver superior crop establishment, uniform maturity and greater harvestability over many other hybrids. s InVigor LibertyLink canola hybrids are developed in high-yielding, strong-performing, elite germplasm, which results in stable and consistent performance in the field, without yield drag or lag. s Liberty has a unique mode of action (Group 10) that offers a nonselective choice for Integrated Weed Management plans.

s Liberty is a nonselective contact herbicide that provides postemergence control of broadleaf weeds and grasses, including weeds resistant to glyphosate and multiple herbicide classes. s Liberty kills weeds in days vs. weeks. s Liberty herbicide with the LibertyLink trait keeps weed management simple and allows growers to continue farming efficiently. s Liberty herbicide with the LibertyLink trait is the only nonselective alternative to glyphosatetolerant systems.

WHERE TO FIND INVIGOR LIBERTYLINK CANOLA
s LibertyLink trait technology is available in high-yielding, high-quality InVigor hybrids. s Contact your local seed dealer/distributor or Bayer CropScience representative about where to find the latest varieties available.
