Great Plains

The long-term goal of the Great Plains canola research program, administered by Kansas State University, is to facilitate the adoption of winter canola as a viable rotational crop in the region. Researchers have adopted high-priority winter canola production systems, including genetic improvement and more. Because of research and extension efforts through NCRP funding, winter canola is an emerging crop in the Great Plains (mainly Oklahoma, but also Kansas, Texas, Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and California). As a result, the USCA established 800,000 acres as a goal for regional production by 2015.
