Spring Oilseed Rape: Lyside

The first variety from Knold & Top Plant Breeding is the spring oilseed rape LYSIDE.

Lyside became listed in Denmark in 2007 and in the EU in 2008. Lyside is made through classical breeding, the white or creamy flower colour has been transferred by repeated back crossings from the old Scottish forage rape Hobson into spring rape.

Taste of Lyside oils

It appears that high quality cold pressed unrefined oils of Lyside has an even better (milder) taste than high quality cold pressed oils from yellow flowering rape varieties.

Effect of flower colour on behaviour of pollen beetle

A report of trials made already will be added to this home page later. The report can be forwarded on request.
This summer the effect of main crop / catch crop on pollen beetles will be tested on a 30 ha field.
