FY2006 Canola Research - Pacific Northwest Region Grant uri icon

Overview

abstract

  • The Pacific Northwest region has great potential for canola seed production as well production of canola seed as a source of edible oil, biolubricants, and biofuels. Constraints to canola production in the region include the need for cold-hardy winter canola varieties as well as the need for drought tolerant varieties of Brassica, and more robust information for producers on crop management and harvest technologies and preferred canola varieties for the region. Funding received from the PWNCRP Special Grant supports research that provides growers with research-based solutions for canola production problems encountered in the PNW.
