Research Database

The Alberta Canola research committee selects and funds projects that helps farmers succeed in growing canola, investigate new uses and health benefits of canola oil, and promote the use of canola meal in livestock feed rations.

* This database is being actively updated with research funded by the service charge paid by canola farmers in Alberta from 1994 to present.
