Canola Performance Trials

Canola Performance Trials (CPT) represent the next generation in variety evaluation for Western Canadian canola growers. The 2022 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. The 2022 trials were again coordinated by Murphy et al Inc. with the direction from the CPT Governance and Technical Committees. The Manitoba Canola Growers Association administered the program with additional support from Alberta Canola, SaskCanola and the Canola Council of Canada. Trials provide relevant and unbiased performance data that reflects actual production practices and comparative data on leading varieties and newly introduced varieties. Once the 2022 CPT field scale dataset is finalized, it will be posted below, along with the complete 2022 CPT small plot dataset.

The 2015 CPT survey results 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!
