Proven Performance Trials 2015 - Page 5

2015 Proven Performance Trials The CPS Field Performance Check (FPC) and Fieldscale Retail Demonstration (FRD) programs have been featuring varieties and collecting data since 2009 to give producers and CPS agronomists local results under local conditions in a field scale format. All sites were producer-managed using field scale equipment. All hybrids within the field were seeded on the same date and treated with the same fertilizer, herbicides and fungicides. Harvest timing was based on variety maturity. Yields were measured by weigh wagon or by yield monitors, which were calibrated prior to harvest. 105 napus field trials and demos were seed, and yield data was collected from 84 of these sites. Yield Average Yield (bu/ac) 2015 started out as an early season across many areas of the Prairies. Frost and drought posed a significant challenge early in the season, but in most cases respectable yields were produced. DK 74-44 BL VR 9562 GC CPS would like to thank all the producers who cooperated in the 2015 Proven Performance Trials program.
