CCC launches Canola Research Hub
By Top Crop Manager
The Canola Council of Canada (CCC) has launched the Canola Research Hub, an online database designed to provide growers with the latest research findings to increase both productivity and profitability.
"This is a first-of-its kind technology transfer tool," says Curtis Rempel, VP Crop Production and Innovation with the CCC. "It will allow growers to access canola research behind particular recommendations and quickly zero in on the findings most relevant to their region and concern."
The Canola Research Hub was developed to illustrate the science behind best management practices of Canadian canola production, provide practical tools to evaluate agronomic performance and to inform production management decisions. Completed studies, funded under Growing Forward, provide the strong foundation for this resource with future database expansion to incorporate the findings from other agronomic research programs. These include the 16 studies currently in progress under GF2, Canola Agronomic Research Program (CARP) projects, and additional studies funded by each of the provincial grower groups.
From the Hub's main page, accessible at www.canolaresearch.ca, users can navigate through a library of research summaries, view and filter research data, watch video interviews and clips, access published resources, download multimedia materials, and keep up to date on science-based industry news and events.
