Innovation through breeding

It is not by chance that RAPOOL has become one of the largest oilseed rape producers. More than 15% of our turnover is reinvested into research and breeding.

We do the small things very well
Oilseed rape from RAPOOL stands for excellent progress in breeding. Genetic improvements have facilitated massive advances in yield performance, disease resistances and stress tolerance, as well as high oil and meal quality.

RAPOOL – the oilseed rape innovators
Innovation is a tradition at RAPOOL. The first breeding programmes were started more than a century ago. This was the birth of oilseed rape breeding. RAPOOL has been able to implement a large systematic breeding programme thanks to the many years experience of the four breeding companies, their numerous accomplished specialists and their own four breeding programmes. The genetic diversity that RAPOOL can call upon is unparalleled. All the significant innovations in oilseed rape cultivation – from 00-rape via MSL hybrids to specialty varieties, together with proprietary seed treatment technology – were introduced by RAPOOL. This comprehensive know-how has made RAPOOL a global leader in oilseed rape breeding and seed technology.

Breeding for the Future
In order to promote breeding advances at the highest level, we have a range of partners from all around the world - from breeding, science and academia- with whom we actively interact. Today, this wealth of experience coupled with an eye on the future has enabled RAPOOL to grow top performing varieties that meet today’s requirements as well as those of tomorrow and beyond.
