2019 Sunflower Variety Performance
The Manitoba Sunflower Variety Performance Trials (VPT) is organized and conducted by the National Sunflower Association of Canada (NSAC) in co-ordination with Manitoba Agriculture and Resource Develop-ment. 2019 was the 13th year that the NSAC has coordinated the trials, which continue to serve as an im-portant tool for sunflower growers with regional third-party performance data on various varieties. The hy-brids tested in the trials are actively being pursued by sunflower breeding companies in Manitoba and may be in the experimental stage or registered under the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. In 2019, the NSAC coordinated the VPT at four locations across the province: Melita, Carberry, Dakota Plains and Stonewall.
