Interpretive Summary: NDOLA-2 is an open-pollinated non-GMO spring-type canola developed at North Dakota State University (NDSU) and approved for specialty release by the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station. Testing in NDSU canola breeding nurseries (2017 to 2020) and North Dakota Canola Variety Trials (2019 and 2020) indicated NDOLA-2 has higher seed yield potential (5.5% and 5.4%, respectively) but lower oil content (2.1% and 1.6%, respectively) compaired to commercial hybrid checks or commercial cultivars/hybrids. NDOLA-2 has been identified as resistant to blackleg disease and Sclerotinia stem rot disease of canola. NDOLA-2 flowers within 44 days from seeding, flowering lasts 22 days, and reaches maturity within 93 days from seeding and plants are 103 cm tall. It is resistant to lodging with a score of 2.1 of 9, and has an overall breeder score of 8.0.

Technical Abstract: The ‘NDOLA-2’ (Reg. No_, PI_) is an open-pollinated non-GMO spring-type canola developed at North Dakota State University (NDSU) and approved for specialty release by the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station. NDOLA-2 was tested as an experimental line ‘NDC-E16198’ from 2017 to 2020 (16 location-year) in NDSU canola breeding nurseries, and in 2019 and 2020 (8 location-year) in North Dakota Canola Variety Trials (ND-CVT). NDOLA-2 has been identified as a higher seed yield potential and disease tolerant cultivar. NDOLA-2 had 5.5% higher seed yield and 2.1% lower oil contents to those of commercial hybrid checks in NDSU canola breeding trials. Also, NDOLA-2 had 5.4% higher seed yield and 1.6% lower oil content over the means of commercial cultivars/hybrids in ND-CVT. It has been identified as resistant to blackleg disease (pathogenicity group 4) and Sclerotinia stem rot disease of canola. NDOLA-2 flowers within 44 days from seeding, the flowering period lasts 22 days, and reaches maturity within 93 days from seeding. It is resistant to lodging with a score of 2.1 of 9. The plants are 103 cm tall, and have an overall breeder score of 8.0 where the trial mean score for all locations was 7.7.
