This project continued or completed previously initiated research studies with the goal of generating recommendations on best management practices for economic and environmentally sustainable canola production.
Robert Blackshaw with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) led the multistudy project. The specific studies were: a canola rotation study led by Neil Harker with AAFC in Lacombe, AB; a nitrogen study (see report 3.2.3 in this issue) led by Robert Blackshaw; an input study led by Eric Johnson with AAFC in Scott, SK; and an Ethiopian mustard breeding program led by KevinOpen the PDF to read the entire research summary from the 2013 Science Issue of Canola Digest
