Evaluation of Adaptability and Ecological Performance of Brassica juncea Canola in Diverse Growing Environments
Principal Investigator: Yantai Gan, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Swift Current, SK
Collaborators: Robert Blackshaw, Eric Johnson, Cecil Vera, Bill May, Guy Lafond
The two B. napus cultivars in this five-site trial were quicker to mature and yielded more than the B. juncea cultivars. Therefore, B. napus may be better than B. juncea for short growing season areas.
Yantai Gan with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) led the three-year study to determine the yield capacity of Brassica juncea canola in comparison with B. napus canola in various sites. The study also examined the suitability and feasibility of straight-combining B. juncea canola and B. napus canola by quantifying seed and pod losses during plant maturity.Open the PDF to read the entire research summary from the 2013 Science Issue of Canola Digest
