Canola and Rapeseed

The Office of Technology Transfer facilitates the licensing and distribution of agricultural technologies including wheat, potato, canola, rapeseed and mustard cultivars to support agribusiness in Idaho and worldwide.

‘Amanda’ is a near-homozygous winter rapeseed cultivar with canola-quality seed oil and canola-quality seed meal, selected for high adaptability to the dryland and irrigated regions of the inland Pacific Northwest (Idaho, Washington and Oregon). ‘Amanda’ is most similar in plant appearance to the cultivar ‘Athena’, but with lower leaves having greater attachment than those of ‘Athena’.

‘Clearwater’ was developed for use as an edible oil-quality (canola) cultivar by the Idaho Agricultural Experimental Station. Clearwater is a near pure-line spring canola cultivar which has high resistance to imidazolinone class herbicides.

‘Durola’ is a near-homozygous winter rapeseed cultivar with industrial rapeseed seed oil and canola-quality (i.e., less than 30 μmol g-1 of total seed meal glucosinolates in defatted seed meal) seed meal, selected for high adaptability to the dryland and irrigated regions of the inland Pacific Northwest. After fall seeding, ‘Durola’ seedlings emerged quickly and produce a good fall stand which was better than ‘Bridger’ and ‘Dwarf Essex’. ‘Durola’ showed significantly better winter-hardiness than ‘Bridger’, which tends to have poor winter hardiness. Flower bloom dates of’ Durola’ were 125 Julian days, which was significantly later than ‘Bridger’ and earlier than ‘Dwarf Essex’.

‘Sterling’ is a pure-line (near homozygous) spring industrial rapeseed cultivar with high erucic acid content in seed oil and canola-quality seed meal, selected for high adaptability to environments throughout the Pacific Northwest region (Idaho, Oregon, Washington and Montana). Sterling is similar in plant height, plant morphology and maturity to the spring rapeseed (canola) cultivar ‘Legend’. Oil quality of ‘Sterling’ is significantly different from ‘Legend’, with ‘Sterling’ having high erucic acid content (>45%) and Legend having less than 1% erucic acid content in seed oil. Fatty acid profile of Sterling is like that of the cultivar ‘Hero’, but significantly shorter.
