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 2017 are based on 10 small plot trials and 45 field scale trials across the Prairies, including 26 standard trials, 12 straight cut trials and seven clubroot-resistant variety trials.
Small-plot and field-scale trial results from the 2017 growing season are currently available in both the 2017 CPT data booklet and in the online database.
The results from the 2015 CPT survey are still accessible in this visually appealing document (including a concise executive summary) here. Thanks again to all those who took the time to fill it out and provide us with your feedback!
