Get your £303 voucher with Corteva's Oilseed Rape Offer
Already the most profitable break crop in the rotation, oilseed rape is expected to make a resurgence this autumn, buoyed by strong market demand and new approaches to establishment. Early predictions are that some growers will increase their planted area, while those who have taken a step back from the crop in recent years could return. 

We're running an exclusive offer for anyone who purchases our new Protector® Sclerotinia tolerant hybrid PT303 and Belkar® herbicide this season. Participants will be eligible for a £303 One4All gift card when they provide proof of purchase for these items.

For more information take a look at our short video by clicking on the OSR offer image below, or click on the button.

Build resilience into your winter crops
Weather patterns in the autumn have been unpredictable of late, with above average rainfall in many areas of the UK.  Too much rain can leach nitrogen or create waterlogged soils which lead to loss of nitrogen by greenhouse gases. This escape of nitrogen into the environment is not good economically or environmentally. Build resilience into your cropping programme by including a nitrogen stabiliser which will protect valuable nitrogen, improve your winter crops, and deliver a clear environmental benefit on your farm.

Nitrogen stabilisers slow down the conversion of ammonium to nitrate and keep nitrogen available to crops for longer to optimise yield and quality. Corteva nitrogen stabiliser products feature Optinyte™ technology and are sold under the N-Lock™ and Instinct™ brands.

By applying Optinyte products to your seed bed prior to drilling, you can slow down the de-nitrification process and reduce leaching during the wet autumn months when soils are most vulnerable to leaching. Controlling nitrogen in this way has a double benefit – it keeps nitrogen available to crops for longer to optimise yield and quality, and it improves sustainability by reducing nitrogen losses by up to 50% through leaching and greenhouse gases.

Optinyte can be applied to winter cereals and rape either through a crop sprayer or added to slurry. Farm trials show average yield increases of +4.7% in winter wheat.
