Increasing return on investment from canola seed through improved establishment - Program 1

This research aims to achieve a 25% improvement in canola establishment in Australia by 2030 by ensuring canola breeders have the know-how and tools to develop new cultivars with improved establishment. This will be delivered by providing Australian canola breeders with the genetics (germplasm with an average of 75% crop establishment) and the know-how (diagnostic markers and efficient phenotyping methods) to develop varieties with improved establishment and early growth potential.

Growers and advisers will gain a better understanding of how establishment-related traits are influenced by their management decisions (eg sowing depth, time of sowing), as well as benefiting from the overall outcome of better canola establishment.
