Field Day


The Council's Field Day offers growers a guided tour of the research trials involved in the Minnesota Canola Production Centre (CPC). Hosted by the CPC site agronomist, the tour features a comprehensive, in-depth look at the year's research trials. For 2021, the Council's 24th year of CPC management, research trials included: variety and systems comparison; seed shattering; pre-emergent, soil-applied herbicide evaluation to reduce development of herbicide resistance weeds; nitrogen source, timing, and method of application to improve NUE (nitrogen use efficiency) in both traditional and wide rows; and micronutrient fertility management to enhance canola yield.

Field day was held Wednesday, July 14 along with the always popular Canola Hackers Golf Scramble. The CPC tour began at 9:45 a.m. and was followed by a burger basket lunch at Oakcrest Golf Club. The Canola Hackers Golf Scramble began at 12:15.

The 2021 CPC was located at Northern Resources Cooperative in Roseau, MN.
