Effect of sowing date on the yield of winter oilseed rape



Effect of sowing date on the yield of winter oilseed rape



Experimental Husbandry (36): 1-8



Series (2) of trials measured the effect of sowing date on the yield of winter oilseed rape. Best seed and oil yields were obtained by sowing during the 1st 3 wk of Sept. Yield was depressed by sowing in Aug. and often by late Sept. or Oct. sowing. Oil content in the seed was reduced by late Sept. or Oct. sowings. Good yields were obtained over a wide range of plant stands but the trials suggest a minimum population of the order of 50 plants/m2 is required. There were no important interactions between sowing date and varieties tested.
