Conference paper

Abstract

The breeding programme of high-oleic-acid rapeseed (HOAR) was started at NPZ/Lembke almost 10 years ago. The idea was to improve the quality of rapeseed oil for human consumption as well as for oleo-chemical applications. Recently we have learnt that this new quality will also improve the Biodiesel fuel for diesel engines because this new rapeseed oil will have a lower iodine number and, therefore, result in a better RME-product.
