Announcements

New video published: “Spring Canola Production in Eastern Washington”
The WOCS project collaborated with the CAHNRS Communications video team to produce a video about spring canola production that is now available on YouTube. The three cooperators who hosted the WOCS 2016 large-scale spring canola variety trials were interviewed for the video, and there is also drone footage of the plots at each location. The video can be found on the WSU CAHNRS YouTube channel. A companion video “Canola Production and Research in Washington State” was published in 2014 and features more detailed information about the WOCS Project.
