Off patent harvest tolerant canola

I see an ad on kijiji Saskatchewan for this stuff. Anybody know anything about it? Ad seems to indicate they are breeding ? Or are they just selling?

This is all news to me. First I had heard of good harvest herbicide. It says same active as Liberty, (almost, Glufosinate Ammonia, vs. Ammonium in the Liberty). But the label only indicates preharvest uses, not for LL canola. Is this a legal restriction? The Kijiji ad seems to indicate it can be used.

I was going to ask about that stuff yesterday as I saw it on Kijiji. A few things make me skeptical.


The ad I saw is gone today but it originally said the following:
CANOLA SEED .. High Quality .. B Please Contact

BULK SEED .. CANOLA .. Common #1 Canola $7.00 Per Lb 1000 & 2000 Lb Totes Hybrid .. Pod Shatter Resistant .. Open Pollinated First Generation #1 Grade Canola High Quality Glufosinate Ammonium Resistant Selling Fast !!! Delivered !!!!!!!




Something being both Open Pollinated and a Hybrid?

Makar did you talk to him?
If this is the same stuff as friend enquired on couple weeks ago?
It is not registered yet. And that concerns me big time because no one will buy it.
And if someone does buy it and it is not a registered variety well lets just say I don't have near enough liability insurance for that scenario.

I just talked to the guy, they're doing their own breeding. He has not registered it yet, said they're thinking of a name, takes money and a couple years time. Said he sells it as common number 1...??
I'm not experienced enough to really make any observations...

Keep calm and combine on....

Sounds like the same guy.
I will be all for it as soon as it is registered.
The advice we got from the local elevator was if it has a certified seed tag they will buy it.
If not NO.

I was under the impression that Harvest was not available in Canada and that you can't buy Liberty if you didn't buy LL seed.
