The results from science-based, third-party variety evaluations from the 2015 Canola Performance Trials (CPT) are now online via a comparison tool at www.canolaperformancetrials.ca and as a summary booklet that is also available for download at the site.

“By structuring the trials with replicated small plot trials and numerous sites for field scale trials, as well as strict adherence to protocols and statistical analysis, CPTs provide growers with a fair third-party assessment of variety performance,” Nicole Philp, CCC agronomy specialist and CPT co-lead, said. “Growers want this type of information when making variety decisions, which is why CPT results are such an important resource for them.”

The online tool can be customized to refine searches by many different options such as season zone and yield, among others.

The Canola Council of Canada delivered the program and The Alberta Canola Producers Commission, the Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission (SaskCanola) and the Manitoba Canola Growers Association all provided funding for the CPT program, in which Bayer CropScience, BrettYoung, Canterra Seeds, Cargill, CPS Canada/Proven Seed, DL Seeds and Syngenta participated. 

The trial used 29 small plot trials and 33 field scale trials across the Prairies to add more variety to the performance trials. 

The Canola Council of Canada is a full-value chain organization representing canola growers, processors, life science companies and exporters.
