Canola Agronomic Research Program (CARP)

The Canola Agronomic Research Program (CARP) is funded by the three provincial canola grower organizations – Alberta Canola, SaskCanola and the Manitoba Canola Growers Association (MCGA), and is administered by the Canola Council of Canada.

Since 1985, CARP has supported canola agronomic research focused on increasing yield and profitability for growers and reducing production risk while enhancing sustainability.

CARP research priorities are identified through collaboration with canola growers, the provincial canola grower organizations and the rest of the value chain based on varying agronomic challenges, the needs of industry and outcomes of the annual Canola Discovery Forum. Proposals are reviewed by the Alberta Canola, SaskCanola and MCGA research committees, who may also request input from the Canola Council of Canada’s Crop Production and Innovation team members for additional agronomy insight.

This program is a great way to partner the support and perspective of the provincial canola grower groups with the strengths of the CCC Crop Production team in order to produce targeted agronomic research which aligns with grower concerns and industry research priorities. The findings from these projects are incorporated into various online and print tools, such as the Canola Research Hub, Canola Digest, Canola Watch, the Canola Encyclopedia and CCC extension presentations.
