Origin & Breeding History: '8571' is a microspore derived doubled haploid line produced from the cross 'Davin'//J04E-0044/J03Z-16440, made in 2004 by Viterra Research and Development staff in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Following chromosome doubling, the original DH plant was grown in a greenhouse and self-pollinated. The line was selected and designated J05Z-08376. Nursery rows were grown near Temuco, Chile in 2005-2006. Selection was based on agronomic performance, canola-quality traits and resistance to imidazolinone herbicide. '8571' was entered into a first year (private data) Co-op trial in 2006. Based on good agronomic performance and quality characteristics, it was entered a second year of registration trials in 2007.

Tests & Trials: Trials were grown during the summers of 2007 and 2008 in Watrous, Saskatchewan. Plots consisted of 5 rows with a row spacing of 22 centimeters and a row length of 1.3 meters. There were 2 replicates arranged in a RCB design.
