RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (January 19, 2016) – The latest trial results, benefits observed with various harvesting approaches and regional disease updates will all be discussed at this year’s Canola Grow More sessions hosted by Bayer InVigor® representatives. Farmers can attend the free sessions while attending the KMOT Ag Expo in Minot, N.D.

Each 30-minute session will provide the same information and will be hosted in the meeting room behind the Bayer booth #30 in the Titan Machinery Hall. The schedule is:

  • 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 25
  • 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 26

At the Canola Grow More sessions, farmers will receive information on best harvest management practices, disease updates, in-depth information on 2016 trial results, and two new hybrids in the 2017 InVigor lineup.

“We believe canola is a profitable and important rotation crop for farmers across North Dakota, Montana and Minnesota,” says Kristie Sundeen, InVigor North Central sales lead for Bayer. “The Grow More sessions, at the KMOT Ag Expo, aim to equip farmers with the latest agronomic and crop management knowledge, so they can take full advantage of the high-yielding canola genetics they plant.”

In addition to attending the educational sessions, farmers can enter the Grow More Giveaway at Bayer booth # 30 for a chance to win InVigor seed.
