Organic rapeseed as a new attractive niche product?

The production of organic oilseed rape can be a profitable alternative for farmers in northern areas of Scandinavia - Scottish growers want to investigate that under local conditions and established an own project. The organic rapeseed can deliver an income up to 1.100 € per ton, based on two valuable products: rapeseed meal as a high-energy, respectively high-protein feed for the organic livestock and the oil, which can be used for human consumption. The project based on trip of farmers to Sweden, where they observed a substantial organic market with around 9% of the total rapeseed market.
