Key messages
  • Crusher (TT), Garnet (conv), 44Y84 (IT) and Hyola 505 (RR) yielded significantly better than the site mean (2.20t/ha).
  • Oil (%) was above 42% in all varieties.
  • The best yielding of the triazine tolerant (TT) varieties were equal to the best of the other herbicide groups
  • Of the Clearfield tolerant (IT) varieties, hybrids (44Y84 and 45Y82) yielded 14% higher than conventional open pollinated varieties (44C79 and 43C80).
