National Canola Research Program
Since its inception, the NCRP has fostered cooperation between participating universities and the private sector. This approach is uniquely suited to the development of canola research efforts and production systems across the county. The NCRP demonstrates how modest federal research support can be efficiently targeted to achieve a national goal through regional efforts. Each region looks for ways to increase U.S. canola producion through research on insect, disease and weed control; best management practices; genetics and breeding; and other areas that may increase canola yield and acreage.
