SeCan launches open-pollinated variety
Rugby canola is a new open-pollinated Roundup ReadyRM Argentine canola variety developed by LembkeRM. Rugby was the top-yielding open-pollinated variety in the 2007 Prairie Canola Variety Trials (PCVT) with an average yield level of 89 percent of the hybrid check varieties. Rugby’s yield can also be compared to 46A65 – the open-pollinated check variety used in the Cooperative Registration Trials (Coop Trials) in western Canada. On average, over two years of coop testing (2005 and 2006) Rugby yielded 105 percent of 46A65.

The variety has strong straw and a “Resistant” rating for blackleg. The height (approximately 107 cm) and the medium maturity of Rugby are similar to several other check varieties such as 46A65, 5020 or 45H21.
