The 2017 Canola Performance Trials small plot and field scale data booklet is now available on the canolaperformancetrials.ca website!
The booklet displays yield, height, lodging, days to maturity and calculated gross revenue values for over 20 varieties (from all three HT systems) grown in small plot sites in short, mid and long season zone locations all across western Canada.
The field scale dataset includes 26 standard trials and eight clubroot-resistant variety trials, which used the standard CPT protocol, as well as 12 straight cut trials which utilized the new CPT straight cut protocol. The data is presented in organized tables with disease tolerance, distributor and additional variety specific information as well as average season zone graphs. This year small plot variety data averaged across all zones is also included.
Have a look at the field scale trials and see how some of the popular clubroot-resistant varieties performed, how the varieties in the straight cut trials compare and how the standard trials in your area performed. You can also check out the top yielding varieties in your season zone or province, examine the Liberty Link, Clearfield or Roundup Ready varieties or consider the height and lodging scores of small plot trial site data.
Funded by growers, for growers
The 2017 CPT program was funded by Alberta Canola, SaskCanola and the Manitoba Canola Growers Association, with contributions from the BCGPA and all of these grower organizations also have a spot on the CPT Governance Committee. The Canola Council of Canada delivers the program on their behalf. The provincial oilseed specialists and seed company representatives contribute expertise to the program on both the Governance and Technical Committees to ensure only high quality is included in the final dataset.
The CPTs continue to provide relevant, unbiased, data on leading varieties and newly introduced varieties from trials that reflect actual production practices.
As mentioned on the booklet, this CPT program is funded by canola growers for canola growers, so see what more it can do for you. Check out www.canolaperformancetrials.ca! Data from trials back to 2011 is still available for review and consideration.
