    What are the Canola Performance Trials? The CPT or Canola Performance Trials are a grower-funded, third-party testing initiative that’s regarded as one of the best sources for unbiased data on the most popular canola varieties on the market. The CPTs have been published for many years, and growers have made it known that they value this type of data and would like it to continue. In a 2015 survey, 90% of respondents said data from an independent third-party source was either somewhat or very important to them.

    The Canola Performance Trials (CPT) are run by the Canola Council of Canada, with support funding from the three provinical canola grower groups.

    As a seed company, CANTERRA SEEDS has a full portfolio of pedigreed varieties including cereals, pulses and special crops, in addition to corn, soybeans and canola. While we like to think of ourselves as a team, sometimes representatives from different parts of our portfolio differ in opinion on key items. Take for example this recent debate on the merits of corn vs. barley as a feed.

  • Blackleg CS-1.jpg

    Recently, growers in Western Canada may have been noticing an increased incidence of blackleg appearing in their canola crops, even in varieties with an “R” rating. It is believed that some blackleg resistance genes are losing their effectiveness on the Prairies. To help growers manage blackleg and reduce their risk for the disease, a new model has been developed to classify blackleg resistance. The new model is composed of two parts:

    The new CWRS from CANTERRA SEEDS has been added to Warburtons IP Program for the 2018 growing season on a market development basis. AAC Cameron VB is a new, high yielding CWRS with resistance to the orange blossom wheat midge. It is higher yielding than Unity VB, with a significantly better lodging resistance. It has also been shown to have the lowest levels of FHB among CWRS vareities tested by Manitoba Agriculture.  Find out more about AAC Cameron VB

  • Clubroot.jpg

    The costs of managing the disease may be higher than you think. Clubroot is top of mind for many growers these days, as the disease has recently been discovered in new areas including High Prairie, the Peace River Region of Alberta, and northwest of North Battleford. Prior to these discoveries, clubroot was mostly concentrated in north-central Alberta and parts of Manitoba. The footprint has steadily been spreading through the canola growing regions of Western Canada.
