Prior to planting Bayer technology, including TruFlex® canola with Roundup Ready® Technology and Roundup Ready® canola, growers must complete an accreditation course. The accreditation is an important part of Bayer’s stewardship program and is designed to provide growers and advisers with the information they need to get the most from the TruFlex canola and Roundup Ready canola systems.
Accreditation does not cost anything and there is also no obligation to plant a crop once you have signed the agreement.
Once accredited, growers need to sign the 2019 License and Stewardship Agreement (LSA). It is important to ensure growers sign the most recent LSA in order to purchase and plant TruFlex canola and Roundup Ready canola, and to participate in Bayer’s new program, DecilePro™, in accordance with the license terms and conditions, including the Crop Management Plan (CMP), and all other regulatory requirements of the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) and the Office of the Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR).
Information on DecilePro™ can be found here.
Please note, even if a grower has an existing LSA, they will still need to sign the new LSA to be able to participate in the DecilePro program and grow TruFlex canola.
