The Canola Performance Trials (CPT) online database has now been updated to include the 2017 small-plot and field-scale CPT dataset. So now, when you run queries on the CPT database, 2017 data can be included in your single or multi-year searches.
When using the database (at the bottom of the page at canolaperformancetrials.ca), just add ‘2017’ to your selected year options, along with the other parameters you are interested in seeing, and then click ‘Search Trials’.
This will produce graphs and a data table displaying your choice of yield, days to maturity, height or lodging scores as well as a map of all the locations which fit your selections.
You can also see pre-made graphs of just 2017 data in the 2017 CPT small plot and field scale data booklet or learn more about how to use the CPT searchable online dataset on page 19 of the Canola Variety Selection Guide: Featuring CPT Summary Data.
The independent, third-party data of the CPTs is brought to you by the provincial canola grower groups. Alberta Canola, SaskCanola and the Manitoba Canola Growers Association funded the 2017 CPT program, along with contributions from the British Columbia Grain Producers Association and the Canola Council of Canada (CCC) delivers the program on their behalf. See how the data can benefit you!
