Golden Age Canola

This is a flexible tool to show you how much seed you would need to sow each paddock with your preferred Bayer hybrid variety. Once you’ve calculated the quantity you need and what it will cost, you also have the option of reserving that seed through your preferred agent.

Plus even though you can reserve your seed supply as early as you like, with our Pay @ Harvest terms, you pay nothing for your Bayer Hybrid seed until November 30, 2018.

If you know the average establishment/germination rate in your paddock, you enter it below.


If you don’t know the rate, use the table to estimate it or simply settle for the default rate of 80%.


These factors can all affect establishment (or field germination) rates. Use your experience of growing canola under similar conditions to estimate the likely rate in your chosen paddock this season.

The information provided by this calculator is intended for use as a guide only. Bayer cannot guarantee that every result given is without flaw of any kind. While Bayer has taken all due care to ensure that the information provided is accurate, various factors, including planting times, soil and environmental conditions may alter the characteristics and performance of plants. The seeding rate calculations produced by this calculator are built on certain assumptions around average growing season rainfall, target plant densities and requires the user to submit their own assessment of their expected field germination rate for the seed. Field germination rates can be influenced by both environmental conditions (soil type, soil moisture, disease pressure, pest pressure, weed pressure) as well as chosen farming practices (sowing time, seed bed preparation and seeding methods). For application to specific conditions and to select a field germination rate applicable to your conditions it is recommended that you seek further advice from a local farming professional.
