Oilseed Rape

At Seed Technology we research and market high yielding oilseed rape varieties with high oil content combined with an excellent agronomic package for disease resistance, lodging resistance, early maturity and reasonable plant height. Seedtech have very strong associations with some of the top breeders of oilseed rape varieties in the world and these breeders are advancing in new cutting edge technology through various research projects. New methods and techniques for breeding varieties have been developed and this is leading to new improved traits. New for 2018 sowing is Phoenix CL from Clearfield which combines high performing varieties and post emergence herbicides designed to work together to protect the crop and minimise risk.
