December 4, 2015 – The field scale Canola Performance Trial (CPT) results have been added to the online results booklet
November 24, 2015 – Canola Performance Trials (CPT) 2015 small-plot data on canola seed varieties is now available in this online booklet.
CPT 2015 had over 25 small-plot sites across the Prairies. The booklet includes results from short, medium and long season zones, with yield and agronomic performance, as well as gross revenue for each variety and location.
The CPT provides science-based, unbiased and timely performance data that reflects actual production practices, as well as comparative data on leading canola varieties and newly introduced varieties.
The CPT program is funded by the three Prairie canola grower groups — the Alberta Canola Producers Commission, SaskCanola and the Manitoba Canola Growers Association. Seed companies that participate in the CPT program paid entry fees.
Participants in the small plot trials include Bayer CropScience, BrettYoung, Cargill, Canterra Seeds, CPS Canada/Proven Seed, DL Seeds and Syngenta. The 2015 CPT includes results from over 25 small plot locations.
Field-scale variety information will be available soon in an updated booklet and on the website. The online tool allows users to filter data by factors such as maturity zone and herbicide tolerance, and look at multiple years of data.
Do you value high quality, unbiased, third party canola variety data? We want to hear from you!
The current Canola Performance Trials (CPT) program, which is funded by MCGA, SaskCanola and ACPC and delivered by the CCC, has been providing variety trial data back to growers through the CPT booklets, CPT website and the Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta seed guides since 2011. With multiple sources of variety trial data available to growers, the CPT Committee wants to see if you find value in these high-quality, unbiased, timely trials and how you think the program could improve going forward.
