(rāp-sēd) [L. rapa, turnip]
The seed of Brassica campestris and other Brassica species, whose oil is used in the manufacture of lubricants and canola oil. The oil made from the seeds of the variety high in erucic acid is used as an industrial lubricant. Oil made from the seeds of the low-erucic-acid variety is relatively low in saturated fat and is commonly known as canola oil.

rapeseed meal
as oil cake or meal after rapeseed oil is removed this is a high-protein feed supplement used in cattle. It can be goitrogenic because of its content of isothiocyanate but can be detoxified.

Stomatal conductance had the highest correlation with rapeseed yield (r = 0.
Rapeseed yield was severely affected by the interaction of crop year, drought stress, nitrogen, and genotype (Table 1).
In both crop years, the increase of nitrogen caused the increase of rapeseed yield so that the highest rapeseed yield belonged to the treatment with application of 105 kg/ha nitrogen and in irrigation condition (Figure 7).
In fact, the yield of rapeseed in this experiment was the result of several factors.
The results indicate that in order to achieve optimal yield of rapeseed within the conditions of this experiment, 105 kg/ha nitrogen is needed.
Drought stress in this experiment occurred during the flowering stage of rapeseed and thus the reproductive parts of rapeseed such as flower and pod were damaged.
Fermented rapeseed meal was sampled and analyzed for dry matter by drying at 105[degrees]C for 5 h, ash by incineration at 550[degrees]C.
The chemical composition of fermentation rapeseed meal
Characteristics of solid-state fermented rapeseed meal are shown in Table 3.
Fermentation changed the physical and nutritional characteristics of rapeseed meal (Table 3).
2010) reported that the weight gain of broilers fed fermented rapeseed meal was superior (p<0.
In the current study, compared to ducks fed SBM, a higher content of serum total phosphorus and calcium in ducks fed FRSM was observed in the first trail stage which may be associated with the increase of available phosphorus and calcium in fermented rapeseed meal.
