February 13, 2014 Conference Call Meeting Minutes

SBARE Canola Granting Committee
Conference Call Minutes

The conference call of the State Board of Agricultural Research and Education’s canola granting committee was called to order at 7:30 a.m.  Voting members present were Dave Gehrtz, Wally Brandjord and Kyle Rollness.  Non-voting members present were Dr. Brian Jenks, Dr. Bryan Hanson and Dr. Marcia McMullen. Also present were Barry Coleman, Northern Canola Growers Association and Lori Capouch.

The committee discussed the following proposals:

Genotype screening and seeding date influence on winter canola in North Dakota
Researcher:  Burton L. Johnson
Amount requested:  $5,160 (yr. 3of 3)

Winter canola genotypes will be screened for winter hardiness and other traits in field studies at the NDSU Prosper research site.

Seeding date effect on winter and Sprinter canola at Hettinger, Langdon and Minot RECs in North Dakota
Researcher:  Burton Johnson
Amount requested:  $10,125 (1 year)

Winter canola genotypes will be evaluated for winter hardiness, yield and other traits in a seeding date study conducted at the Hettinger, Langdon, and Minot Research Extension Centers. Seeding date influence on Sprinter canola will be evaluated at the Hettinger and Minot research centers.

Evaluation of potential conventional canola breeding lines developed from winter x spring crosses in North Dakota
Researcher:  Mukhlesur Rahman (Yr 2 of 2)
Amount requested:  $8,737

Increased seed yield is the most important and attractive traits for canola growers. Winter type canola producers over two-fold seed yield compared to spring type canola. Because of severe winter hardiness, winter type canola is not possible to grow in North Dakota.  Therefore, this project has been initiated to develop spring type canola by introducing favorable yield contributing characters from the winter types to create new high seed yield spring canola germplasm adapted to North Dakota.  In this project, a winter nursery facility will be used to reduce the time it takes to reach practical homozygosis by one half and researchers will be able to obtain adequate volumes of bulked seed per family for early generation testing and selfed seed for generation advancement.

Funding Decisions

Coleman led the group through the funding discussion.  He stated that the proposals that are not funded could be forwarded to the Northern Canola Growers for consideration. They will be meeting within the next three weeks. 

It was noted that the two continued projects, submitted by Dr. Johnson and Dr. Rahman, did not include an updated progress report. 

It was moved and seconded to grant negotiated funding of up to $8,737 to the project titled “Evaluation of potential conventional canola breeding lines developed from winter x spring crosses in North Dakota" contingent on the researcher providing an acceptable progress report for work conducted in the previous year. Motion carried unanimously. 

Coleman will follow up with Dr. Johnson about submitting his proposals to the Northern Canola Growers Association for consideration and will request the required progress report. 

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned.

The committee discussed the following proposal:

Development of high seed yield spring canola utilizing winter type germplasm adapted to North Dakota
Researcher:  Mukhlesur Rahman
Amount requested:  $9,640

Increased seed yield is the most important and attractive traits for canola growers. Winter type canola producers over two-fold seed yield compared to spring type canola. Because of severe winter hardiness, winter type canola is not possible to grow in North Dakota.  Therefore, this project has been initiated to develop spring type canola by introducing favorable yield contributing characters from the winter types to create new high seed yield spring canola germplasm adapted to North Dakota.  In this project, a winter nursery facility will be used to reduce the time it takes to reach practical homozygosis by one half and researchers will be able to obtain adequate volumes of bulked seed per family for early generation testing and selfed seed for generation advancement.

Funding Decision

It was moved by Brandjord and seconded by Gertz to grant negotiated funding of up to $9,640 to the project titled “Development of high seed yield spring canola utilizing winter type germplasm adapted to North Dakota.”  The motion carried unanimously.

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned.
