ECODA project number: Oilseeds East Activity 15


  1. 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 growing environment.
  2. To quantify effects of canola plant population on seed quality (primarily free fatty acid content).

This research is underway, so the research project’s final report is not available yet.
