Industry Reports

The AOF, from time to time, commissions specific industry reports to provide relevant information to members and other stakeholders. Recent reports commissioned by the AOF include the following:

GM Canola: Reports outlining the industry plan, and subsequent experience in delivering market choice following the commercial introduction of GM canola in 2008.

Windrowing/Swathing: This report details the results of an extensive survey of growers, capturing their perceptions and practices used to determine the optimal time for windrowing or swathing.

Greenhouse Gas Report: This report, completed by CSIRO, details the methodology used and the final determination for greenhouse gas values attributable to canola production in Australia. This report was formally accepted by the EU Parliament and actioned by enabling legislation on 15 December, 2017. This AOF/AEGIC project was jointly funded by AEGIC and major Australian canola exporters.

Chlorophyll in Australian Canola:  Australian canola may also undergo periodic harvests which result in green seed. Frost damage in particular has been reported as the major cause. This study was designed to determine the degree of the problem, the reasons and possible solutions.
