Growers and researchers have long observed that crops following canola in a rotation tend to demonstrate reduced yield, compared to results when seeded behind another crop. It can largely be explained by the relationship (or lack of relationship) between canola and certain fungal microorganisms in the soil, such as mycorrhizae.
Mycorrhizae form a mutual beneficial association with the roots of nearly all crops, except some plants like Brassicaceae (canola, mustard). Canola roots exude a toxic compound that reduces populations of those beneficial microorganisms in the soil.
Adding AGTIV® mycorrhizal inoculant at seeding following a canola crop are an easy tool to add life to the soil. Your following crop will be AGTIVated by increasing soil health, creating a bigger root system to uptake even more nutrients and water.

AGTIV® products are regularly analyzed and tested rigorously, both by our team and farmers. Click to see how the AGTIV® dual inoculants (rhizobium and mycorrhizae) can benefit your crop following canola by increasing soil health and creating a bigger root system to uptake even more nutrients and water.
Third party trials comparing AGTIV®’s dual inoculant (rhizobium and mycorrhizae) to different inoculants on the market showed a significant positive impact of the mycorrhizae component on yield for soybeans, lentils and peas.
