Variety Trials

Variety trials are an integral part of U.S. canola field research and are conducted yearly for both spring and winter canola. These trials evaluate hybrid performance and attributes, such as blackleg resistance, oil content and seed yield. Testing many canola varieties in regional trials across the U.S. helps farmers determine which varieties will have the most potential for success on their farms.


Spring and winter canola variety trials take place yearly through North Dakota State University and the National Winter Canola Variety Trial administered by Kansas State University.
