Canola Agronomic Research Program

Canola Agronomic Research Program

We are currently soliciting letters of intent (LOIs) for the 2021 program


The Canola Agronomic Research Program (CARP) is funded by the three provincial canola grower associations – Alberta Canola, SaskCanola and the Manitoba Canola Growers – and administered by the Canola Council of Canada.

Since 1985, CARP has supported canola agronomic research focused on increasing yield and profitability, reducing production risk and enhancing sustainability with effective technology transfer. Results are integrated into information tools such as the Canola Research Hub, Canola Digest, Canola Watch, the Canola Encyclopedia and extension presentations.

2021 CARP

CARP is now soliciting letters of intent (LOIs) for the 2021 program.

The Western Grains Research Foundation has once again expressed their interest in participating with the canola grower organizations in potential funding for projects aligned with their research priorities.

Please use this template for submission of your LOI noting that collaboration with multiple organizations is welcome and encouraged. Send submissions or questions to:

Gail Hoskins
CCC Crop Production Administrator and CARP Co-ordinator

The deadline for submission of the 2021 CARP LOI is September 7, 2020.
Notification and Request for Full Proposal will be sent to applicants on October 5, 2020.


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.

CARP proposals are reviewed by the Alberta Canada, SaskCanola and Manitoba Canola Growers Association grower research committees, with additional agronomic input from the Canola Council of Canada’s crop production and innovation team and other subject area experts.
