The objectives of the group are:

  1. Identify current canola growth models or crop models that are used to simulate canola
  2. Develop protocols and identify reference data sets for evaluation and inter-comparison of canola models
  3. Identify knowledge gaps and recommend improvements in modeling development, growth, grain yield and grain quality of canola crops
  4. Produce multi-model assessment of yield potential of canola crops in major production regions of the world
  5. Conduct multi-model assessment of the impacts of climate change on canola production
