In 1993, Congress appropriated funds to establish a nationally coordinated research program for the emerging U.S. canola industry. From its inception, the National Canola Research Program (NCRP) has been designed to ensure the greatest possible cooperation and interaction between participating universities and the private sector on both a regional and national basis. This approach is uniquely suited to the development of canola research efforts and production systems across the county. The NCRP demonstrates how modest federal research support can be quickly and efficiently targeted to achieve a national goal through regional efforts.
