LOW RAIN GOOD FOR GROWING CANOLA <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns =
"urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />


 

Australian canola growers in dry areas will receive a boost this year with
the release of early maturing canola variety, CB Tanami.

 

CB Tanami proved a winner last year, yielding well in low rainfall regions
in Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) supported National
Variety Trials (NVT).

 

CB Tanami and CB Boomer are recent additions to low rainfall growers’
“armoury” for battling drought.

 

CB Tanami matures well under drought stress, has moderate oil and protein
content and moderate resistance to blackleg, while CB Boomer has very large
seeds and vigorous early growth, combined with a determinate growth habit
and rapid maturity.

 

Buntine grower and GRDC Western Panel member, Merrie Carlshausen, welcomed
the new varieties, especially after last year’s poor rainfall.

 

These early maturing TT canola varieties are adapted to the low rainfall
cropping zones of southern Australia, which includes Mrs Carlshausen’s farm.

 

CB Tanami has been bred to yield high in the wheatbelt of southern Australia
and its excellent early vigour and drought tolerance enables it to “pull
through” the tough seasons, such as the one experienced in 2006.

 

In NVT trials in WA, SA and NSW at low to medium rainfall sites in 2006, CB
Tanami outyielded ATR-Beacon, Tornado TT, Bravo TT and ATR-Stubby.

 

CB Tanami’s oil content was equal to ATR-Stubby and about one per cent lower
than Bravo TT and Tornado TT. 

 

Canola Breeders Western Australia Pty Ltd (CBWA) released CB Tanami in
November 2006 and CB Boomer the previous year.

 

The two latest varieties, CB Boomer and CB Tanami, were standouts in the
wheatbelt in 2006, according to CBWA CEO and University of Western Australia
Associate Professor Wallace Cowling.
