Improving seed quality in winter oilseed rape
Basu, Krishna Rachel (2003) Improving seed quality in winter oilseed rape. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The majority of UK oilseed rape (Brassica napus L.) is September-sown on heavy clay soils where straw has been incorporated following the cereal harvest in August. A series of germination, emergence and field experiments was conducted to assess the effects of variation in seed quality on establishment and to evaluate the improvements possible by mother crop nitrogen management and pre-sowing seed treatments on commercial and farm-saved seedlots.
