Rapeseed (Brassica spp) is third most important edible oilseeds of the world after soybean and palm oil. In case of Nepal, Rapeseed are the 1st crop for the production of oil seed. However, there was a lack of elite high yielding variety of rapeseed having wide range of adaptability and stability. With the objective of identifying of high yielding variety, Oilseed Research Program, Narc, Nepal was continuously doing series of research like Observation trial, Initial evaluation trial, coordinated varietal trial and Coordinated farmer trial with the local and exotic genotype of rapeseed for consecutive 7 years. As a result, elite genotype “ ICT 2001-35” was identified as high yielding with the yield of 1201 kg/ha, protein with 23.22 % , fat with 46.48% ( dry basis) and with wider adaptability and stability. Hope this variety will be mainstream in the production of rapeseed and contribute for the oil production in Nepal.
