Oilseed Rape

We have a long and successful track record in oilseed rape breeding and currently a strong market presence with clubroot resistant varieties. We also have a range of HEAR varieties for this specialist market. For the future, we have varieties progressing through the trials system as we continue our breeding programme which is focused on hybrids with improved yield and agronomics added to consistency in performance.
