Prairie Canola Groups Fund Five Research Projects

The three Prairie provincial canola grower associations will be funding five new research projects focusing on developing and evaluating disease resistance, abiotic stress resilience, and integrated pest management, a March 15 news release said.

The funding is being doled out under the Canola Agronomic Research Program (CARP) with the total investment being over $1.7 million. The funding also includes over $1 million from Alberta Canola, SaskCanola and Manitoba Canola Growers, as well as over $600,000 from the Western Grains Research Foundation (WGRF), the release said.

“CARP allows the Prairie canola groups to work together and leverage grower dollars to increase research capacity, while simultaneously benefiting all canola growers in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba,” Roger Chevraux, chair of Alberta Canola, said in the release. “Although our specific research priorities may differ from province to province, we are committed to investing in research that contributes to the continued successful and sustainable production of canola in Canada.”
