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.
