Growers Invest $3.7 Million in Canola Research

The three Prairie provincial canola grower associations have evaluated and selected 13 new canola research projects that will receive $3.7 million in total funding under the Canola Agronomic Research Program (CARP) in 2024. This investment includes over $2.1 million from Alberta Canola, SaskCanola and Manitoba Canola Growers, as well as over $1.6 million from the Western Grains Research Foundation (WGRF). CARP supports canola agronomic research focused on increasing yield and profitability, reducing production risk and enhancing sustainability. The funded projects often provide new strategies for managing top pests and diseases, improving nutrient management and generating more resilient canola. The 2024 projects awarded funding are focused on understanding the impact of verticillium stripe and its relation to blackleg; clubroot management and monitoring; Flea beetle tracking and trapping; and developing novel strategies to improve resiliency against biotic and abiotic threat

Farm Cash Receipts Up 3.6% in 2023

Canadian farm cash receipts inched higher in 2023 as strong cattle returns offset just a mixed performance from crops and lower program payments. A Statistics Canada report Thursday pegged last year’s total farm cash receipts – which include returns for crops, livestock, and program payments – at $98.6 billion. That is up $3.4 billion or 3.6% on the year and represents a significant softening from the 14.6% increase in farm cash receipts recorded in 2022. Total livestock receipts were up 9.8% to $37.3 billion in 2023, led by increases in the cattle and supply managed sectors. Meanwhile, nationwide crop receipts were 2% higher on the year to $54.9 billion, while total direct payments fell 13.4% to $6.4 billion, mainly due to lower crop insurance payments. In terms of crops, returns were higher for wheat and durum in 2023, but weaker for corn and soybeans. Receipts for wheat (excl durum) increased nearly 10% or $922.4 million to $10.3 billion, while durum wheat receipts were up

Growers invest more than $3.7 million in 2024 to tackle canola agronomic priorities

The three Prairie, provincial canola grower associations have evaluated and selected 13 new canola research projects to receive funding under the Canola Agronomic Research Program (CARP) in 2024. This investment includes over $2.1 million from Alberta Canola, SaskCanola and Manitoba Canola Growers, as well as over $1.6 million from the Western Grains Research Foundation (WGRF), bringing the total investment to over $3.7 million. CARP supports canola agronomic research focused on increasing yield and profitability, reducing production risk and enhancing sustainability. The funded projects often provide new strategies for managing top pests and diseases, improving nutrient management and generating more resilient canola. Grower associations are pleased to partner with the WGRF, enabling even greater innovation and discovery. “There is huge value in pooling levy dollars to invest in research projects that address canola agronomic issues that farmers in all three provinces face,” says Ke
