Mustard 21 has undertaken five major activities as part of its research effort with the Diverse Field Crops Cluster (DFCC) with financial support of the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP). This 5-year research program began in 2018/19. Executive summaries of the project proposals are available here:
Condiment Mustard Development
Germplasm and Variety Development of Condiment Mustard for Improved Yield and Quality
Developing Carinata Varieties and Hybrids for Drier Canadian Prairies with Key Traits using Molecular Breeding Tools as a Preferred Industrial Oilseed Platform
Herbicide Tolerance in Mustard
Identifying and Developing Herbicide-Tolerant Germplasm for Carinata and Yellow Mustard.
Mustards in Crop Rotation
Identifying Agronomic and Environmental Benefits and Drawbacks of Diverse Crops in Cereal/Canola/Pulses Crop Rotations on Semi-Arid Canadian Prairies
Value-added Food Uses
Defining Functional Protein, Mucilage and Fibre Value of Yellow Mustard for the Food Industry.
