Post-Registration Variety Trials
Post-registration variety trials, also known as Regional Variety Trials, produce important results that allow producers to make informed decisions about which crops perform well in given geographic areas, with specific soil types and under specific conditions.
A new project that will ultimately provide data from across Western Canada is currently underway. Funded through grants from Agriculture and Agri Food Canada’s Advancing Canadian Agriculture and Agri-Food (ACAAF) program (administered by the Agriculture and Food Council of Alberta), the Alberta Crop Industry Development Fund, the Alberta Barley Commission, and Alberta Agriculture and Food, the project aims to coordinate variety testing trials of spring wheat, durum wheat, oat, barley, spring triticale, flax and pulse crops, and to collect the results for use by both industry and individual producers across western Canada.
Please note that as of April 1, 2009, coordination of the Regional Variety Trials Program will revert back to Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development, and will no longer be the responsibility of ARECA. The program will continue, however, and results for trials will still to be available to Alberta producers. Read more here.
