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

THE PROFITABILITY OF SEEDING THE F2 GENERATION OF HYBRID CANOLA

The high cost of hybrid (HY) canola (Brassica napus L.) seed has some producers considering F2 generation hybrid farm-saved seed (HY-FSS), or open-pollinated (OP) varieties (both certified and farm-saved seed). The net return (NR) of different varieties, genetic backgrounds, seeding rates, seed treatments, and seed sizing was evaluated from three experiments over eight site-years of

COMPARISON OF CERTIFIED AND FARM-SAVED SEED ON YIELD AND QUALITY CHARACTERISTICS OF CANOLA

Relatively high seed prices and low canola (Brassica napus L.) grain prices created a controversy over using farm-saved seed from hybrids. Agronomic implications of saving seed from a canola crop were investigated by planting certifi ed seed and saved-seed of an open-pollinated and a hybrid canola cultivar at eight site-years in Saskatchewan and Alberta, Canada.

RESEEDING OPEN-POLLINATED CANOLA VARIETIES IN CANADA

The Manitoba Canola Growers’ Association (MCGA) engaged Strategic Vision Consulting Ltd. (SVC) to compile a list of open pollinated canola varieties Canadian farmers may have the right to save and replant under the definitionof farm saved seed. In this document, SVC will refer to these varieties as “free to reseed.

Clubroot Research

Clubroot research project is a 4 year project to build a durable clubroot resistance. This is funded by Alberta Crop Industry Development Fund (ACIDF) and the three grower groups. In addition to the project mentioned above Manitoba Canola Growers have also set up a testing facility.  The Pest Surveillance Initiative (PSI) is a project of the

PROTEIN FRACTIONATION PROJECT

Protein Fractionation project is a joint project with SaskCanola and AAFC that will test Brassica protein fractionation process under large scale processing, execute economic analysis of the process and market positioning of the products.

CANOLA AGRONOMIC RESEARCH PROGRAM

The goal of this program is to increase the profitability of canola production. The funding groups of CARP are the Canola Council of Canada, Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission, the Alberta Canola Producer Commission and the Manitoba Canola Growers Association. CARP projects are selected by the Board of Directors of MCGA. The projects that are selectedare

CANOLA PERFORMANCE TRIALS PERFORMANCE TRIALS

Canola Performance Trials (CPT) represent the next generation in variety evaluation for Western Canadian canola growers. The three Prairie canola grower groups – Manitoba Canola Growers Association, Alberta Canola Producers Commission, and Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission (SaskCanola) – fund the program. The Canola Council of Canada delivers the program on their behalf. Trials provide relevant
