Canola Week is a merger of Keith Downey’s Canola Industry Meeting (established in 1970), Wilf Keller’s Canola Innovation Day (established in 2003), and the Canola Council of Canada’s Canola Discovery Forum (established 2013). This three-day series of virtual sessions is bringing together over 600 canola growers, researchers, agronomists, life science representatives and other stakeholders to discuss:
- State of the industry, trade, end-use products and markets
- Research and innovation
- Cutting edge technologies
- Agronomic issues and the 2020 crop
- Canola fertility (the focus for the day two Canola Discovery Forum sessions).
