CANADA: SWP and AAFC launch new Brassica juncea varieties
Agri-business co-operative Saskatchewan Wheat Pool (SWP) and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) have introduced a new crop to western Canada that can be grown in hotter, drier regions of the southern prairies. Arid and Amulet, two new canola-quality Brassica juncea varieties, are available to producers this growing season at SWP locations throughout southern Saskatchewan. Since 1991, the Pool and AAFC scientists at the Saskatoon Research Centre have worked closely to develop these new products using selective breeding techniques. Originally derived from mustard plants, these new non-GMO varieties are more drought-resistant and produce canola-quality oil and meal.
