Trial details

Researcher(s) Dominic Bolton and Wes Arnott (SFS)
Year(s) 2003
Contributor Southern Farming Systems
Trial location(s) Gnarwarre, VIC
Canola variety demonstration trial locations
  • To test a range of canola varieties (TT and non TI) for yield
  • To assess the impact of seed treatment (Maxim ® and Jockey @) on yield
Key messages

It would appear that there are a number of new varieties showing promise in relation to yield. Beacon, 603 CL and NS04397 are stand out varieties in the TT category and Ag Castle, P98125, 46C04 and 45C05 in the non IT category. The seed treatment Jockey ® appeared to give a yield increase to the varieties Beacon and Grace, although depressed the yield of Sapphire. This cannot be explained.
