QUALITY: erucic acid 0.03 % of total fatty acids, and low glucosinolates 13.29 µmol/g
CHEMICAL REACTION: resistant to imidazolinone herbicides
Origin & Breeding History: 'Manor' was derived from the cross, DS 1-5298.001 x DS 1-5299.001 which took place in 1995 in Holeby, Denmark. From 1995 to 1997 single seed descent occurred with a final selfing in 1997 to bring it to the F5 generation. In 1998 the first field observations in unreplicated plots were taken in Morden, Manitoba with selection criteria of imi-tolerance, agronomic and quality characteristics. From 1999-2000 replicated yield and spray trials were set up with selection for yield, blackleg tolerance, agronomy and quality characteristics. In 2000, glasshouse multiplication from selfed plants was performed. From 2001-2002 the variety was entered in the Western Co-op trials. Experimental designation was 163-12.
Tests & Trials: Test and trials were conducted in the summers of 2004, 2005, and 2006 at the Elora Research Station, Elora, Ontario. Plots consisted of 4 rows spaced 40 centimeters apart and a row length of 5 meters. There were two replicates arranged in a RCB design.
