AgCelence® for your oilseed rape
BASF offers best-in-class crop protection for oilseed rape.
In autumn and spring AgCelence® promotes better rooting and the ability to buffer against frost conditions. AgCelence® also improves crop canopy management which aids in maximizing yield potential.
AgCelence® applications during flowering minimise pod shatter to reduce pre-harvest losses.
In addition, AgCelence® treated plants have reduced levels of ethylene, a plant stress hormone, which can lead to less premature senescence (aging).
Your crops receive the help they need to overcome yield constraints caused by stress factors such as dry conditions. These benefits work together and result in yield increases even in growing seasons without Sclerotinia attacks.
Farmers know that oilseed rape growing conditions vary every year and from region to region. This is why BASF conduct our field trials all over the world and repeat them for several years so that we can give our customers the best advice for reaching higher yield in your oilseed rape. For instance, the trials confirm that AgCelence® applications during flowering minimise pod shatter to reduce pre-harvest losses.
This is why we conduct our field trials all over the globe and repeat them over several years to provide you with the best advice.
Together with the University of Soest in Germany we conducted the following trial simulating losses caused by pod shattering: We shook oilseed rape plants that were either untreated or had been treated with an AgCelence® product and measured the losses. The results clearly demonstrated that AgCelence® products can significantly reduce the percentage of shattered pods. This effect decreases the losses in oilseed rape before and during harvest.
