Rapeseed/Canola

Rapeseed/Canola

Canola and Rapeseed are frequently confused, and the terms are often used interchangeably. Canola was produced through selective plant crossbreeding to remove two specific traits from traditional rapeseed. Canola differs in that it contains lower levels of glucosinolates and erucic acid. These two compounds are found to be detrimental to human health in higher concentrations. Thus, to be labeled canola oil for consumption, it must contain less than 30 micromoles of glucosinolates and less than 2% of erucic acid. Rapeseed oil is still used in industrial applications. Both canola and rapeseed belong to the cabbage or mustard family. The plants’ flowers both have that characteristic bright yellow color, and oil is obtained from both seeds by crushing them. Field production of rapeseed is the same as that for winter canola.

Pod Shatter

Adequate moisture during the growing season is critical to ensuring a healthy crop. However, moisture can also cause yield loss through pod shatter. The intrusion of moisture from rain or dew can cause expansion and contraction of pods, weakening the overall structure. Pod Ceal® binds to a pod’s natural waxes and minimizes this expansion and contraction, helping to minimize pod shatter losses.

Flowering

Flower production and bloom is integral to the development of a healthy crop. For a robust harvest to occur, a healthy and significant flowering must occur for fertilization. A number of key micronutrients are integral for flowering. When nutrients are not available or are deficient in the soil, this can lead to a diminished or reduced bloom. The translocation and availability of key nutrients can dramatically impact the quality of harvest at the end of the growing cycle. Millerplex® provides a balanced package of macronutrients, micronutrients , sea plant extracts, as well as our proprietary Express technology. These all combine to both supply key nutrients but also assist in enhancing the metabolism and translocation occurring within the plant.
