A Hyola industry field day held in central west NSW recently drew a keen crowd of growers, researchers, agronomists and retailers involved in the canola industry.
The Hyola technology innovation day, run by Pacific Seeds, showcased the latest canola technology at Greenethorpe.
Twelve speakers from seven leading private and government organisations, including BASF, Bayer CropScience, Syngenta, Monsanto, PrecisionHawk and NSW DPI, discussed herbicides, seed treatments, foliar fungicides, TruFlex technology and innovative new hybrids.
They also covered the latest in disease research, drone technology mapping, canola insect IWM research, canola breeding and traits, and agronomic management.
Pacific Seeds canola manager Justin Kudnig said the day was well-received by industry, with about 80 people attending.
“We received an overwhelming response to the content of the day and the releasing of the new Hyola global first unique stacked technologies for growers into the future,” Mr Kudnig said.

“The other key part of feedback received was that we are showing a really good pipeline of canola products going forward. That’s why it is vital to be aligned with other important trait development global organisations such as Monsanto and BASF.
“Attendees were some of the first to hear about out our national value pricing deal for growers on Hyola 559TT, to see our new and improved products - Hyola 350TT and Hyola 506RR - and to see technologies such as TruFlex and Hyola CT (Clearfield-Triazine tolerant), which will be available over the next few years.”
Mr Kudnig said as one of the leaders in canola technology development in Australia, it was important to host these days so farmers and advisors could consider their options going into the future.
“At Pacific Seeds, we’re all about choice for the grower. Whether that is Roundup Ready, Clearfield, triazine tolerant or the upcoming dual and triple stacked herbicide technologies.
“It also creates good spirit and a positive message within the whole agricultural industry and within our own team across the whole company.”
