GRDC Code: DPI1906-007RTX
Improving production of grower retained open pollinated canola seed using agronomic management to increase establishment in the MRZ and LRZ of the GRDC Northern Region.

The investment will characterise and evaluate agronomic management strategies that improve canola seed germination and vigour in addition to grower practices (seed size, speed of sowing, depth, fertiliser placement) that optimise plant establishment density in medium to low rainfall zones in the GRDC northern region. It will identify optimal management (including but not limited to; growing environment, nutrition, harvest management) of open pollinated canola crops destined for seed production to improve subsequent crop establishment.
