Canola Performance Trials (2018-2019)

Crop Types: Canola

Centre(s): PESAI

The goal of the Canola Performance Trials (CPT) is to evaluate currently available commercial canola seed varieties available to farmers. Yield differences should be due to genetic differences only, not due to high weed, disease or insect pressure. For research trials, this may mean taking pest control action below economic thresholds used for commercial production. • Use best practices for pest control to lessen impact of pest damage for best results. Local contractor is to make the best choice of product for each site. Ensure products are applied at the right time and right rate. CPT coordinator, CCC Agronomist or Provincial Oilseed Specialist can provide input if required.

Montra Crop Science (2019-2021)

Crop Types: Canola

Centre(s): PESAI

Montra Crop Science has sustainable organic plant and soil supplements. These products naturally chelate minerals and increase uptake of nutrients for the plant by supporting the biology in the soil and in the plant. The current project is designed to determine if efficacy of post emergence herbicides and crop fertilizers can be enhanced when used in conjunction with organic acid products. PESAI will perform a three-year trial on Canola and Soybeans to see effect of organic acid products. This trial will include soil testing, plant tissue testing, emergence and plant vigor ratings, pest pressure, and yield.
