New type of rapeseed oil approved in China

CAAS has approved a novel type of rapeseed oil „Zhong Yusha 1“, obtained from radiation-induced mutagenesis of an African variety of rapeseed. Characteristics are high yield, high oil content and good quality. The tuber seed oil content is 31.3%, which is the oilseed rape with the highest oil content in the Yangtze River Basin. The oleic acid content is 68.2 %, linoleic acid 11.0%, quality comparable with olive oil. Dry weight yields of 568kg/mu and oil yield per mu of over 170kg have led to name this crop "king of oil crops”
