How did new varieties perform in 2019?

The final 2019 Canola Performance Trials small plot and field scale data report is now available on the CPT website for viewing and downloading and will be added into the searchable database soon.

This final 2019 CPT report features small plot yield, days to maturity, height and lodging scores for each variety, by location and summarized data by season zones (short, mid and long) as well as across all season zones. The results in this report are based on 31 small plot (19 standard, 12 straight cut) and 60 field scale (12 standard, 37 straight cut and 11 clubroot) trials across the Prairies. Site distribution is based on seeded acres in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.

The 2019 program acknowledges the funding from Alberta Canola Producers Commission (Alberta Canola), Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission (SaskCanola) and the Manitoba Canola Growers Association, with contributions from the B.C. Grain Producers Association. The 2019 trials were again coordinated by Haplotech with the direction from the CPT Governance and Technical Committees. The Canola Council of Canada supported on the delivery of the program.
