Have not heard anything Good about their new line.
Poor yield and standability compared to 7565...

With the lack of summer this year anyone who grew any truflex, lots of acres here, had substantially more issues with high green count, inability to dry down, and subpar yield compared to tried and true 7565 and 7444. Maybe in a year with more heat they might have done better but this past season proved truflex is a dud.

So did anyone try 82SC last year next to L233P? I gather the 92SC was a dud and is no longer available, but in some trials locally the 82SC held together through some hail and yielded similar to the Invigor.

I'll probably put some in my trial anyways, just curious if other experience with it.

Yup, we grew the 92SC this year and the plant seemed to stay green forever. It appears that DeKalb is no longer going to offer the 92Sc, I think they have a new one? 96SC? Ive heard good things about that one

Had the BL81. Where the cutworms didnt get at it and where it actually germed before mid june it did quite well. 1% green and was around 60 bpa. It had poor vigor. So where the stars didnt align it was horrible. But last season was not a good start. You get a good year I think it will be a good canola. I'm growing invigor this year with a few bags of 82sc for a side by side.

I grew the 92SC and was extremely disappointed to say the least, low yield, green seed, 125 days in the ground before swathed and could have used another 5 days! The older 75-65 and 74-44 were good, but I'm changing all acres to Invigor this year. I will NEVER grow another "new and improved" variety again. Tired of being a guinea pig for seed companies, costs me too much when the new varieties don't turn out!
