2015 BCTs

Welcome to the BrettYoung Comparison Trials (BCT) for canola. These sites represent our commitment to testing and bringing to the market quality canola varieties and products. Each site is a field scale, farmer managed, replicated field trial. All sites are managed by an independent company in cooperation with the farmer.

Three experimental varieties are being evaluated in this year’s comparison trials. BY15-975, BY15-754 and BY15-068. All three varieties are at all locations with a competitor check and 2 commercial varieties.

Contact your local BrettYoung Regional Account Manager for an opportunity to visit one of the sites.
