oilseed rape

Oilseed Rape is a good choice for growers looking for a non cereal break crop and to help in spreading the harvest window.

The latest hybrid varieties can offer a combination of yield and oil content giving growers a very competitive gross margin on their harvest. The well reported difficulties facing southern growers with pest control are thankfully not an issue in Scotland due to a cooler climate.

Scotgrain’s connections through the supply chain enable us to offer a variety of marketing options to Scottish grower designed to suit their individual needs.
