Project Code: 3.2.4

Final Report: March 2013

Summary: Phosphate fertilizer is a major input cost for canola production. Researchers with
Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada conducted a three-year study (2008-2010) at two locations in Western Manitoba to evaluate the effect of various enhanced efficiency P fertilizers on seedling toxicity, yield and quality of canola. Overall, there was little difference among P sources in their effects on canola seed yield, although a benefit may occur from the use of polymer coated product (CRP) due prevention of seedling
damage.
