Science Edition 2020—
Canadian canola researchers have dozens of ongoing projects. Some are funded by canola growers through their levy payments to SaskCanola, Alberta Canola and Manitoba Canola Growers. Some are funded through the Canola AgriScience Cluster, a partnership between Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) and the canola industry under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP). Over a five-year period, this initiative will invest $25.5 million in research to optimize yield and quality, improve nutrient and water use efficiency, and enhance integrated pest management practices. Here are short descriptions and updates for these projects.
