ECODA project number: <strong>Oilseeds East Activity 16</strong>
The primary objective is to generate local data and understanding of the imp ace of oilseed production in a region that has traditionally been focused on potatoes. There are four sub-activities:
- Evaluate different temporal positions in the cropping system where oilseeds could potentially fit.
- Measure any carry-over benefits realized during the potato year, as well as any other carry-over effects from oilseeds realized in other crops in the rotation.
- Build on the work of the previous round of ECODA research as well as work done in both Maine and Manitoba.
- Evaluate the most effective management options for eliminating canola volunteers during the potato year.
This research is underway, so the research project’s final report is not available yet.
