Seed decisions and CPT

October 7, 2015 - Issue 28

Take notes at harvest to compare harvestability, lodging as well as yield for all varieties on the farm. Growers can use that first hand experience as well as variety comparison data when making seed decisions for next year.

Data for the 2015 Canola Performance Trials (CPT) are still coming in and will be posted on the website as soon as they are available.

Although you may be used to seeing the CPT data in your provincial seed guides, you can also view the same results from 2014 and other previous years in a variety of different formats at the canolaperformancetrials.ca website.

Data from these third-party evaluations are available in map, data table and graph format and well as in previous year’s booklets, depending on your preference, and can be expressed in various ways. The interactive map has the ability to refine searches by province, herbicide system, season zone (short, mid or long) and small plot or field scale data and compare varieties over several years using the multi-year display mode option. Once you’ve created a graph that is of interest to you, it can be downloaded in a variety of file types. Check it out today!
