Diamond – A Brilliant Choice
Nuseed Diamond is an early season Hybrid Conventional canola that sets the benchmark in yield performance in its class. Hybrid Conventional canola is a high yielding option for those who don’t need chemical tolerance to control problem weeds. Hybrid technology creates highly vigorous varieties, utilising crop competition as part of your IWM (integrated weed management) system.
With good adaption to both short and long season environments and excellent early vigour, Diamond gets out of the ground and quickly establishes good ground cover. Nuseed Diamond also comes to you quality tested, has good blackleg resistance and is high yielding with a competitive oil level.

“The Diamond jumped out of the ground and had plenty of vigour. It cabbaged well and covered the ground to compete with the weeds and by mid-July it was flowering. We could probably have planted it a bit later.” Chris Bartlett, Pimpinio VIC
