Oilseed Rape

Drummonds have been to the fore in developing the oilseed rape crop for the last thirty two years, over this period, there have been major changes in production techniques, varieties and markets

The spring oilseed rape crop acts as an excellent break in the cereal rotation. Although spring crop is naturally lower yielding it is also much less expensive to produce and with strong forward prices available, it is well worth considering.

Please consult your Drummonds agronomist who will detail both the production guidelines and the economics involved.
