Canola Performance Trials (CPT) represent the next generation in variety evaluation for Western Canadian canola growers. The 2019 program was funded by the three Prairie canola grower groups – Alberta Canola Producers Commission, Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission (SaskCanola) and the Manitoba Canola Growers Association, with contributions from the B.C. Grain Producers Association. The 2019 trials were again coordinated by Haplotech with the direction from the CPT Governance and Technical Committees and the Canola Council of Canada supported on the delivery of the program. Trials provide relevant and unbiased performance data that reflects actual production practices and comparative data on leading varieties and newly introduced varieties. Although the finalized 2019 dataset is not available yet, a preliminary 2019 CPT small plot data report (‘Preliminary 2019’) has been provided in the interim, since seed selection is a timely consideration. Since this is preliminary data, note that it may be subject to change. The finalized 2019 dataset will include both a small plot and field scale trial data.
For CPT data from 2011-2018, see the searchable database and annual booklets below. Note that straight cut small plot and straight cut field scale data subsets (along with the clubroot resistant field scale variety trials that didn’t use a standard check) are only included in the annual booklets (not in the searchable database).
Results from the 2015 CPT survey are still accessible in this visually appealing document (including a concise executive summary) here. Thanks to all those who took the time to fill it out and provide us with your feedback!
