The deadline to submit a letter of intent for the Canola Agronomic Research Program (CARP) is end of day, Tuesday, September 4, 2018. 

The objective of the CARP Program is to help canola growers increase yield, increase profitability and reduce production risk while enhancing sustainability through quality grower group-funded research and effective technology transfer. The program is funded by Alberta Canola, SaskCanola and the Manitoba Canola Growers Association and is administered by the Canola Council of Canada. 

The 2019 CARP research priorities document outlines a list of priority areas for project applications:
  • Disease
  • Fertility/Soil Health
  • Integrated Pest Management & Sustainability
  • Harvest and Storage Management
The four categories are further expanded upon in the 2019 CARP Research Priorities document available online. A letter of intent template is also available through the link. Collaborations with multiple organizations and facilities is permitted and encouraged. 

The deadline for submission of the 2019 CARP LOI is end of day, Tuesday, September 4, 2018. All submissions should be sent to the attention of Gail Hoskins, CCC Crop Production Administrator and CARP Coordinator at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Notifications and requests for full proposals will be sent to applicants within three weeks of submission of the LOI. Applicants with additional questions are encouraged to contact Gail Hoskins.

Reports from CARP projects can be found on the Canola Research Hub (under the CARP research program projects) and on the provincial grower group websites. Past reports include: Determining Best Practices for Summer Storage of Canola in Western Canada (2014), Quantifying the economic and soil quality benefits of long-term no-till using a canola-spring wheat rotation (2012), and Can We Replace Soya Sauce with Canola Sauce? (2016). 

CARP has supported canola agronomic research since 1985. The findings from these projects are incorporated into various online and print tools, such as the Canola Research Hub, Canola Digest, Canola Watch, the Canola Encyclopedia and the Canola Council of Canada extension presentations.
