Rapeseed (Brassica napus), also known as Rape, Oilseed Rape, and Rapa, is used in the production of animal feed, vegetable oil for human consumption, and ad Visual Reference Images from our eBook Page. From the book: Energy Crops Chapter 7 Oilseed Rape. Richard Weightman, Peter Gladders and Pete Berry This chapter assesses the prospects for using the oilseed rape crop as a feedstock for biofuels. Oilseed rape is used principally as a feedstock for biodiesel because its oil comfortably meets the biodiesel standard (EN).Cited by: 1. The various outputs from this important work form the basis of this comprehensive new book. Biocontrol of Oilseed Rape Pests commences with a review of the oilseed rape crop, followed by chapters on pests, pest management strategies and parasitoids of specific pests or groups of pests. Detailed information is also included on sampling, trapping and rearing pests, their parasitoids and predators; the identification of hymenopterous parasitoids; pathogens of oilseed rape . While the main focus in this book is on canola of Canadian origin, its cousin crop oilseed rape will also be discussed to a lesser extent. The work provides up-to-date information on the crop and highlights areas where research and development is either needed or is in process.
The series comprises seven volumes: Cereals and Millets; Oilseeds; Pulses, Sugar and Tuber Crops; Fruits and Nuts; Vegetables; Technical Crops; and Forest Trees. Oilseeds is devoted to oil-producing field crops such as soybeans, oilseed rape, peanuts, sunflowers, Indian mustard, Brassica rapa, black mustard and flax.5/5(2). Oilseed rape pollen has greater capacity for long-range dispersal than had been suggested by small-scale field trials. Mean separation of oilseed rape fields in the survey area was m and the mean distance from ‘feral’ populations to commercial fields was by: The early varieties of oilseed rape contained high levels of erucic acid but this was considered to have deleterious effects on human health. Breeding programmes produced varieties with low levels of erucic acid in rapeseed oil and glucosinolates in rapeseed meal, the so-called "double low" types which typically contain less than 2% erucic acid. While the main focus in this book is on canola of Canadian origin, its cousin crop oilseed rape will also be discussed to a lesser extent.

Potential oilseed rape potash demand is worth Mt of POLY4 The global oilseed rape market is worth US$ billion1 China makes up 30% of the market by value1 Oilseed rape can be processed for rape oil, dairy or pig feed and honey2 Potassium and sulphur are key yield drivers China uses over million ha of farmland to grow oilseed rape1. Rapeseed (Brassica napus subsp. napus) is a bright-yellow flowering member of the family Brassicaceae (mustard or cabbage family), cultivated mainly for its oil-rich seed, which naturally contains appreciable amounts of toxic erucic acid. Canola are a group of rapeseed cultivars which were bred to have very low levels of erucic acid and are especially prized for use for human and animal : Angiosperms. Shop for Books on Google Play.
