2090 was developed by Agricore United. 2090 combines very high oil content with high yield. In the longer growing season Black soil zones of western Canada, the yield of 2090 is similar to 2047 and higher than 1084. In the shorter growing season Black and Grey-wooded soil zones, 2090 is similar yielding to 2047 and 1084. In the Brown and Dark Brown soil zones, the yield of 2090 is higher than 2047 and 1084. It is immune to North American races of rust, is moderately resistant to Fusarium wilt and is moderately resistant to powdery mildew. 2090, 2047 and 1084 are low linolenic acid, yellow seed coat solin cultivars.
