2126 was developed by Agricore United and combines very high oil content with high yield. In all soil zones of western Canada, the yield of 2126 was similar to the check cultivar, 1084. The 1000 seed weight, oil content and meal protein content of 2126 are significantly higher than 1084. 2126 has higher levels of linoleic fatty acid and lower levels of saturated fatty acids. It is immune to North American races of rust, is moderately resistant to Fusarium wilt and is moderately resistant to powdery mildew. 2126, 2090, 2047 and 1084 are yellow seedcoat, solin cultivars.
