Description


Rapeseed is also used as a cover crop in the US during the winter as it prevents soil erosion, produces large amounts of biomass, suppresses weeds and can improve soil tilth with its root system.

Rapeseed is the third-largest source of vegetable oil.

Rapeseed is the second-largest source of protein meal in the world.

Rapeseed oil is used as diesel fuel, either as biodiesel, straight in heated fuel systems, or blended with petroleum distillates for powering motor vehicles.

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.

Rapeseed is the third-largest source of vegetable oil and second-largest source of protein meal in the world.
