Explore canola research resources

The Canadian canola industry supports scientific research aimed at improving how canola is grown and used. This page is the starting point to access hundreds of studies, including research now underway.

Agronomy research

Visit the Canola Research Hub to view reports and search findings from leading studies focused on yields, profitability and sustainability. The Hub is a knowledge transfer tool, designed to assist the industry in defining best management practices that can be put to use on the farm.

Oil and meal research

Review current research projects, recently completed studies and past research into the nutritional value of canola oil and meal. The Canola Council maintains lists of studies conducted since canola was developed.

Research funding programs

Learn more the major partnerships now underway – the Canola Agronomic Research Program (CARP) and Canola AgriScience Cluster – as well as previously funded research.

Research priorities and coordination

Find out about the next Canola Week, where research directions are charted, and current priorities for canola production research.

On-farm research

If you would like to run a research trial on your farm, choose the protocol you want to implement, download the corresponding data collection sheet and then utilize these documents (including the trial tips) to conduct your trial.
