Canola Performance Trials (CPT) represent the next generation in variety evaluation for Western Canadian canola growers. The three Prairie canola grower groups – Alberta Canola Producers Commission, Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission (SaskCanola) and the Manitoba Canola Growers Association – fund the program. The Canola Council of Canada delivers the program on their behalf. Trials provide relevant and unbiased performance data that reflects actual production practices, and comparative data on leading varieties and newly introduced varieties. Results for 2013 are based on 23 small plot trials and 108 field scale trials across the Prairies.
