dc.description.abstractIn 2001, approximately eight acres of canola (Brassica campestris/rapa) was planted on the Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station’s Delta Field Research Site. Three Polish varieties were planted, mainly Reward and Colt, with a small amount of Horizon. Approximately ten 1500-pound bags of canola were harvested, totalling a yield of 15,000 pounds, nearly a ton per acre. In July of 2003 a small oil press was set up at the AFES Farm and about 25 gallons of oil was pressed. The oil yield was about 25–30% of the weight of the seed. The products, oil and meal, along with five samples of the canola seed were sent to SunWest Food Laboratory in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, for analysis. This report contains quality data from tests of the canola seed, oil, and meal from the 2001 canola grown on the Delta farm.en_US
