Canola Performance Trials (CPT) represent the next generation in variety evaluation for Western Canadian canola growers. The 2018 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, and delivered by the Canola Council of Canada 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 2018 are based on 18 standard and nine straight cut small plot trials as well as 42 field scale trials across the Prairies (including 13 standard, 20 straight cut and nine clubroot-resistant variety field scale trials).
2018 CPT small plot and field scale standard trial results are now available in the searchable database below as well as the 2018 CPT booklet. Please see the 2018 CPT booklet for all 2018 straight cut trial results as well.
The 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!
