Quantifying Genetic Differences in Seed Losses Due to Pod Drop and Pod Shattering in Canola

Researcher: Chris Holzapfel1 Indian Head Agricultural Research Foundation

Project Code: CARP- SCDC2011-20

Final Report: March 2015

Summary: Field trials were conducted from 2011-14 at Indian Head, Scott, Swift Current and Melfort (Saskatchewan) with the objective of quantifying relative resistance to yield loss due to pod shatter and pod drop amongst a wide range of straight-combined B. napus hybrids. An additional objective was to provide information on the overall risk of environmental yield loss in straight- combined canola, particularly in cases where harvest is delayed.
