Saskatchewan canola producers are co-sponsors of a national travelling exhibition next year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the development of canola.
Canola is known as the Cinderella crop after being transformed from a non-edible oilseed called Rapeseed to an important and healthy cooking oil through selective plant breeding.
Kerry-Leigh Burchill is the director of the Canadian Agricultural Museum in Ottawa.
She says a special exhibit at the museum as well as a travelling display will be featured in the coming year.
She says it is an interactive display designed to inform and entertain the public about the development of canola and the future of the crop.
A study in 2013 says canola contributes 19 billion dollars to the Canadian economy, generating 25 per-cent of all farm cash receipts.
