Research and innovation are two key factors that continue to drive the success of Canada’s canola industry. Knowledge transfer is required to extend research findings to growers, agronomists, the scientific community and other industry stakeholders, to initiate the adoption of new practices and stimulate further research and discovery. The Canola Research Hub facilitates the pairing of scientific knowledge with the expertise of those working with canola into varying degrees. The Hub assists the canola industry in defining best management practices based on current scientific evidence to support the production of sustainable and profitable canola in Canada with reduced production risk.
Accessing and applying this information can help growers move towards the goal of a 52 bu./ac. average Canadian canola yield by 2025, as outlined in the Canola Council of Canada’s Keep it Coming strategic plan.
