An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

How has Rapeseed Oil Proven to be an Effective Fuel Source?

Based on emission data, characteristics, and long-term operation behavior of 18 tractors, pure rapeseed oil can be used as a renewable fuel for agricultural and forestry machinery. A healthy whole oil, with its high fat composition and low cost, makes it an excellent choice for daily consumption.

In addition, production of rapeseed oil can prevent between 700 and 1050 tons of greenhouse gas emissions in a lifetime. Pure rapeseed oil fuel could contribute to water protection, soil maintenance, and climate variability in forestry.

Why the Scramble for Low Glucosinolate Rapeseed Oil?

A genetic analysis of some Russian rapeseed samples was conducted by researchers from Skoltech and Pustovoit All-Russian Research Institute for Oil Crops in Krasnodar. Scientists discovered new candidate genes that are responsible for regulating the levels of glucosinolates in rapeseed oil. Their findings will be useful to crop breeders in improving rapeseed oil composition.

Using glucosinolate content data collected over three growing seasons, the researchers compared the results of the genetic analysis of 90 rapeseed lines. Identification of genetic markers and candidate genes associated with glucosinolate biosynthesis allowed for accurate glucosinolate determination of oil. Once the markers have been tested on independent plants, they are likely to be useful for developing new varieties and hybrids with low glucosinolate levels.
