Region 1: High Rainfall, Eastern Washington

Peas on the Palouse
In the higher rainfall (18-22”) areas of eastern Washington canola has been produced with mixed results. Efforts are needed to improve stand establishment and yield consistency for canola, thereby reducing the risk of including canola in rotation with traditional cropping systems. Numerous alternative oilseed crops such as mustard, safflower, lupin, flaxseed/linola, and sunflower have also been produced in Region 1 and could provide more promising choices in a very short time frame with additional field evaluation. Variety trials, agronomic evaluations, seedling vigor, plant pathology testing and further evaluation of canola and alternative crops are all part of the research emphasis in Region 1.
