Canola Council of Canada
Canola Agronomic Research Program
For More Information
The Canola Agronomic Research Program (CARP) is funded by Alberta Canola, SaskCanola and the Manitoba Canola Growers Association and is administered by the Canola Council of Canada. It has supported canola agronomic research since 1985 and is beginning preparation for the 2018 program.
The objective of the CARP Program is to help canola growers increase yield, increase profitability and reduce production risk while enhancing sustainability through quality grower group-funded research and effective technology transfer. In order to achieve these goals, we are soliciting 2018 CARP Letters of Intent (LOIs) on behalf of the three provincial canola grower organizations.
The 2018 CARP research priorities document offers a list of priority areas for project applications:
- Integrated Pest Management & Sustainability
- Stand Establishment
- Harvest and Storage Management
Notifications and requests for Full Proposals will be sent to applicants.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
Researchers are to submit their LOI directly to the sponsor. All submissions should be sent to the attention of Gail Hoskins, CCC Crop Production Administrator and CARP Coordinator at: email@example.com
How to Apply
This is a two-stage application process:

Researchers are not required to submit their LOI to the Office of Research for approval before submission to the sponsor, however Researchers are asked to send a copy of their LOI to the Office of Research for information purposes only (no OR-5 required at the LOI stage).

Please be in touch with the Office of Research (contact information below) ahead of the deadline if it looks like it will be difficult for you to submit all the required documentation on time (i.e. budget, proposal, OR-5 Form).
