Small plot data from the 2016 Canola Performance Trials are now available in the searchable database on the CPT website and in the 2016 CPT small plot data booklet!
Check out the short-, mid- and long-season zone averages of yield, height, lodging and days to maturity for a number of varieties in the 2016 CPT small plot data booklet. If you want to see results from a specific location, use filters in the CPT website database to display individual site data. Using the new functions of the CPT database, you can also do head-to-head comparisons of yield, height, lodging and days to maturity data between two varieties grown at the same locations across western Canada.
The 2016 field scale data will soon be added in to the website, but you can still search the database for field scale data from the last 5 years (2011-2015). The final CPT booklet including both small plot and field scale data will be posted to the CPT website when available.
Canola Performance Trials (CPT) represent the next generation in variety evaluation for Western Canadian canola growers. The three Prairie canola grower groups – Alberta Canola Producers Commission, Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission (SaskCanola) and the Manitoba Canola Growers Association – fund the program. The Canola Council of Canada delivers the program on their behalf.
