Canola study shows no greater threat to specialty seed producers

November 26, 2017 |

In Oregon, an Oregon State University study has been turned over to the Oregon Department of Agriculture so they can make recommendations for canola cultivation in the Willamette Valley region. The study says canola doesn’t pose any greater threat to specialty seed producers than other species and that canola production can coexist with the specialty seed crops. They hope this study will help the longstanding disagreement between specialty seed farmers and canola farmers. Specialty seed farmers grow high-value crops that meet strict genetic requirements and worry about canola contaminating and cross pollinating with other Brassicas like swiss chard.
