De-registered Canola Varieties

Tip #5: Deliver What You Declare

Growing registered canola varieties is an important part of assuring our export customers that the oil and meal quality, biotech traits and disease resistance in our canola supply meets their requirements.

To mitigate risk, do not seed any de-registered canola varieties and do not deliver seed produced from them to an elevator or grain handler. Registered varieties also include agronomic advantages over de-registered varieties, as de-registered varieties often lack critical disease resistance genetics, such as clubroot resistance.

The “no-grow” list includes these varieties:

  • Liberty Link (B. napus): Exceed, 2631 LL, Swallow, SW Legion LL, SW Flare LL, LBD 2393 LL, Innovator, Independence, HCN 14, Phoenix, 3850, 2153, 3640, 3880, 2163, 2273
  • Roundup Ready Polish (B. rapa): Hysyn 101 RR
  • Bromoxynil tolerant: 295BX, Armor BX, Cartier BX, Zodiac BX, Renegade BX
  • Clearfield tolerant: 46A76
