Perenjori trials results - Roundup Ready canola variety demo locations

To assess yield of roundup ready canola varieties.

Key messages
  • The highest yielding variety was GT Mustang. It is not a recommended variety for the area but due to the long growing season it produced the best yield and highest gross margin. The hybrid variety Eclipse yielded better than all open pollinated varieties except GT Mustang. It would be expected that with an average season length that GT Mustang would perform much worse than the other varieties.
  • GT Mustang flowered approximately 3 weeks later than all the other varieties. Hybrid varieties are yet to prove that it is better than open pollinated varieties.
