Evaluation of OP lines and varieties for suitability for commercial production in Manitoba

The Evaluation of OP lines and varieties for suitability for commercial production in Manitoba study consisted of evaluating 10 entries (8 OP varieties, plus 2 WCC/RRC checks) on 7 locations in 4 replications per location. Eight varieties were sourced from different breeders with interest in OP development. The inclusion of the WCC/RRC checks allowed a relative comparison with the commercial hybrids currently sold on the market in Western Canada.

Note: These results are only one year data and more years of data are needed to make a truce statement.
