The article offers farming suggestions for oilseed rape from James Wallace of Dalton Seeds to ensure productivity. With oilseed rape valued at over £300/ton at harvest, it is worth patching gappy winter-sown crops with a spring variety. For early maturing variety such as Earlybird, it is essential to avoid wheat drilling delays after the break. Wallace added that it is vigorous to establish, as a rape, it will cope with summer drought stress and produce a reliable yield.
