Use CPT data for final seed decisions for 2018

While finalizing rotations and assessing seed needs for 2018, use the database of Canola Performance Trial results from 2017 and historical results from 2011-16 at

When using the database (at the bottom of the page), choose the data year(s) 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.

This is the yield graph that results when you select “All provinces”, “All zones”, “Small plot” and “2017” at

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!
