Canola Performance Trials
The 2018 Canola Performance Trials (CPT) small plot and field scale data results booklet is now available above or at https://www.canolaperformancetrials.ca/
The booklet displays yield, height, lodging, days to maturity and calculated gross revenue values for 29 varieties (from all three HT systems) grown in short, mid and long season zone locations all across western Canada.
It features results from 18 standard and nine straight cut small plot trials, as well as 42 field scale trials across the Prairies (including 13 standard, 20 straight cut and nine clubroot‑resistant variety field scale trials).
The three Prairie canola grower groups – Alberta Canola Producers Commission (Alberta Canola), the Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission (SaskCanola) and the Manitoba Canola Growers Association – funded the 2018 program. As a means of participation, the B.C. Grain Producers Association conducted trials in the Peace region. The provincial oilseed specialists and industry scientists provided expertise. The Canola Council of Canada delivered the program working closely with the CPT Governance and Technical Committees and the contracted coordinator (Haplotech). Seed was provided by the distributing companies.
This booklet is designed to assist growers with the variety selection process by showcasing 2011 through 2016 small plot and field scale results from the Canola Performance Trials (CPT). It is laid out in a step-by-step format with many factors along the way for a grower or agronomist to consider and an industry member to showcase.
