There is no anthocyanin colouration on the standard of 'Taifun' whereas 'Fatima' has a medium to large extent of anthocyanin colouration on the standard. The pod attitude of 'Taifun' is semi-erect whereas it is erect on 'Fatima' and 'Snowbird'. The pods of 'Taifun' are longer than those of both reference varieties.

Origin & Breeding History: From 1998 to 2003, crosses and selection up to the F5 lines were conducted using the pedigree and single seed descent methods. In 2004, multi-locational performance tests of the F6 lines were carried out to select the best component lines for the synthetic production of 'Taifun' (tested as 'NPZ6-7530'). In 2005, 5 of the best component lines, NPZ3-7410, NPZ2-7540, NPZ2-7560, NPZ2-7510 and NPZ3-7401 were mechanically mixed and subsequently outcrossed with each synthetic generation grown (2006 and 2007). Replicated multi-locational yield trials were conducted in 2008. 'Taifun' was tested privately in Co-op trials in 2009 and in the Western Canada Canola/Rapeseed Recommending Committee Co-op Trials duirng the 2010 growing season.
Tests & Trials: The tests and trials for 'Taifun' were conducted at the DL Seeds Sun Valley Research Farm in Morden, Manitoba during the summers of 2010 and 2011. Plots consisted of 3 replicates/variety arranged in a RCB design with each replicate consisting of 6 rows, measuring 6.0 meters in length with a row spacing of 17 centimeters. Plots were spaced approximately 0.3 meters apart. Measured characteristics were based on a minimum of 46 measurements per variety per year.
