ECODA project number: Oilseeds East Activity 13 Objectives: The proposed activity will contribute to the development of effective integrated pest management practices for swede midge in canola through the following specific objectives: To evaluate the effects of the timing of
ECODA project number: Oilseeds East Activity 12 Objectives: The overall objective is to develop integrated pest management strategies against flea beetle, pollen beetle and cabbage seedpod weevil (CSW) in Eastern Canada. Specific objectives are to: evaluate the influence of seeding
ECODA project number: Oilseeds East Activity 11 Objectives: To evaluate fungicides, biological agents, marine bioproducts and combination treatments for the control of Sclerotinia stem rot and black leg of canola in eastern Canada. This activity will lead to development of
ECODA project number: Oilseeds East Activity 10 Objective: To study the effect of crop rotation, nutrient management, planting date and plant density on the incidence and severity of stem rot and black leg of canola. This research is underway, so the research
ECODA project number: Oilseeds East Activity 8 Objectives Active screening and validation of molecular markers and progeny material generated in the previous DIAP program. Develop, validate and screen parents and progeny for food quality and agronomic traits using novel molecular markers.
ECODA project number: Oilseeds East Activity 7 Objective: Development of a screening protocol to assess soluble soy protein yield potential in genetic lines from a breeding program. This will lead to more rapid and effective development of new Canadian-food-grade soybean lines
ECODA project number: Oilseeds East Activity 15 Objectives: To determine, in a series of field trials, how reduced plant populations affect physiological responses of spring canola to abiotic stresses – primarily heat stress and water stress – in the Ontario
ECODA project number: Oilseeds East Activity 6 Objectives: Chemical fingerprinting of high-quality food-grade soybean cultivars. Identification of metabolites/biomarkers associated with market and consumer preferences. Identification of genetic and environmental factors affecting the accumulation of biomarkers and selected key health-beneficial metabolites in soybean.
ECODA project number: Oilseeds East Activity 5 Objectives: Improved natto and soymilk/tofu soybean lines and development of new varieties specific to emerging markets. These lines will meet the requirements of early maturity growing areas in Eastern Canada. Improved natto and soymilk/tofu soybean
ECODA project number: Oilseeds East Activity 4 Objectives Screen existing non-GMO soybean germplasm for drought tolerance. Cross drought tolerant parents to high yielding varieties. Select high yielding drought tolerant segregants for future varieties. Increase sustainability and yield of early maturity soybean
