Canola On-Farm Research Program

Manitoba Canola Growers are in the process of establishing a farmer funded, farmer directed, canola on-farm research program that will launch a pilot program in the 2022 growing season. This program will be focused on including farmers in the research that will help them make meaningful productions decisions on their farms using scientific research methods.

Program goals include:

  • Test new and improved applied production practices on a wide range of locations and environmental conditions across Manitoba to help better understand the probability of response and the economic impacts.
  • Tackle research questions that cannot fully be evaluated in small plot and greenhouse research, such as precision ag methods and equipment optimization.
  • Collaboration with research partners to ensure meaningful interpretation of on-farm trial results
  • Bridge the gap between traditional research results and on-farm adoption of new and improved production practices.
