Select vigour for your oilseed rape with InVigor®

The importance of vigour in oilseed rape

Autumn vigour is about speed of emergence and fast production of biomass. This is critical to the success of the oilseed rape crop survival.  A bigger, leafy crop has a significantly higher chance of surviving any cabbage stem flea beetle larvae damage and will be much stronger growing through winter. 

Read the full article on the importance of vigour in here.


The InVigor® portfolio offered by BASF supports a range of hybrids that are especially vigorous in the autumn, and several of which have some of the best spring vigour available.  With the addition of Integral® Pro seed treatment to all the InVigor® varieties as well as a Risk Share programme covering all varieties, growing an InVigor® hybrid will get your oilseed rape crop off to the best start. As well as vigour, the InVigor® portfolio includes hybrids with a range of desirable agronomic traits such as tolerance to pod shatter, verticillium wilt and TuYV.
