Pioneer Protector® HarvestMax Is A Maximum Yield Management System

HarvestMax is about maximizing the yield potential in your field, while maximizing the efficiency of your farm. HarvestMax provides farmers with the flexibility to choose how and when to harvest the canola crop.

By observing the field and the workload across the farm operation, farmers have the flexibility to choose how and when HarvestMax canola is harvested, ensuring maximum yield opportunity on the farm. Normal swath, delayed swath, or straight cut - you decide.

Canola hybrids with the built-in Pioneer Protector® HarvestMax trait are for growers looking for:

  • Maximum yield potential and maximum efficiency on your farm
  • Improvements in the harvest process – increase yield/easier harvest/more flexible harvest
  • The opportunity to extend swathing window - swath later or straight-cut
  • Reduced risk associated with all harvest management - reduced risk of infield loss/harvest management tool/extend harvest window


Swath or Straight Cut – You Decide!




Maximize Performance

Stay on top of tough-to-control and resistant weeds to help maximize yield potential. The right management program helps complement your trait package and protect the canola genetic potential.

*Field results show that Pioneer Protector® sclerotinia resistance can reduce the incidence of sclerotinia in a canola crop by over 60%. Individual results may vary. Depending on environmental and agronomic conditions, growers planting canola hybrids with the Pioneer Protector® sclerotinia resistance traits may still require afungicide application to manage sclerotinia in their crop.
