Canola Agronomic Research Program in 2021 (CARP)
For More Information
The Research Priority files below offer a comprehensive list of priority areas for project submissions as well as the Canola Council of Canada’s priorities for research and innovation:
- Alberta Canola Research
- SaskCanola Research
- Manitoba Canola Growers Association Research Priorities
- Canola Council of Canada's Research and Innovation Priorities
CARP project reports can be found on the Canola Research Hub (under CARP research program projects) and on the provincial grower group websites.
The objective of CARP is to help canola growers increase yield and profitability, reduce production risk and enhance sustainability with effective technology transfer. In order to achieve these goals, 2021 CARP letters of intent (LOIs) are being solicited on behalf of the three provincial canola grower associations.
CARP will consider research in the disciplines of agronomy, genetics and germplasm development, prioritizing those research areas that have been identified through consultation with expert steering groups, the canola value chain and insights from the annual Canola Discovery Forum.
Western Grains Research Foundation (WGRF) has once again expressed interest in participating with the canola grower organizations in potential funding for projects aligned with their research priorities.
Includes an investment of more than $1.1 million from Alberta Canola, SaskCanola and Manitoba Canola Growers, as well as matching funds from the Western Grains Research Foundation (WGRF), bringing the total investment to over $2.3 million.
Please refer to the Office of Research COVID 19 web-page for directives related to research activities at the University of Guelph.

Notification and Requests for Full Proposals will be sent to applicants on Monday, October 5, 2020.
