"In bad infestations, you can lose 35 to 50 percent of your yield," notes Dr. Laima Kott of the University of Guelph, who led the team working on the canola breeding component.
"To put it simply, we've taken the resistant trait from a plant related to canola and we've put it into canola and made it work there," says Kott. Kott outlines the next steps in the research. Kott says several breeding companies are working already with the material to add weevil-resistance into their own breeding lines. She speculates it may take about two or three years for these companies to have resistant canola hybrids ready for growers. To help speed up development of resistant lines, Kott's team is now working on identifying the molecular markers in canola DNA that are associated with weevil resistance. Kott thinks these weevil-repellent effects may be due to high levels of certain glucosinolates in the resistant plants. "There are over 150 different kinds of glucosinolate compounds, and all the members of the Brassicaceae family, like cabbage, canola, mustard and broccoli, have glucosinolates, but canola has been bred to have very low levels," she explains. Her team transferred a little more of two kinds of glucosinolates from white mustard to canola; just enough to make the canola resistant to the weevil. She says the levels of the two glucosinolates peak at two key stages. Kott says, "The resistance is now built into the canola genotype. It's there from a natural source, not from a spray.
