Is your Canola Getting the Best Start? Ask for Lumiderm

Making sure your crop has the best start possible, means protecting it right from the start. For canola farmers, enhanced protection from insects is critical during the first 35 days of seedling growth.

Treating your canola seed with Lumiderm, from Corteva Agriscience™, provides serious plant protection against both cutworms and flea beetles, resulting in enhanced early season stand establishment which leads to increased plant vigour and biomass.

Enhanced flea beetle protection

Across Western Canada, flea beetles are causing significant damage to canola crops and growers are demanding a better solution. Lumiderm insecticide seed treatment offers enhanced flea beetle protection on both crucifer and striped flea beetles for your canola crop.

Excellent control of early season cutworms

Cutworms are a real problem in canola production. If you’re not paying close attention to your fields, they can destroy a significant portion of your crop in a matter of days. Lumiderm protects your canola from cutworm feeding, which helps enhance early season stand establishment and crop vigour.

Treating your seed with Lumiderm™ is the best way to reduce yield loss due to cutworm damage.

Excellent early season seedling stand establishment, vigour and biomass

Lumiderm contains a unique Group 28 insecticide for resistance management. It has resulted in a positive yield advantage 78% of the time across western Canada1 with 35% less flea beetle damage2 (1.4 bu/ac average yield3 increase).

Not only does Lumiderm provide enhanced protection on both cutworms and flea beetles, the enhanced protection during the first few weeks of seedling growth is what really allows canola crops to thrive.
