Oilseeds


The oilseed crops produced in Ireland are Oilseed Rape (OSR) and Linseed. Both are relatively small markets in Ireland with a total area of approx 12,000 ha sown to these crops annually. However, the area of OSR is beginning to expand more rapidly in recent times as growers become familiar with the crop. This is a positive development, as a decent area of break crop is so badly missed since the cessation of sugar beet production in 2006. Goldcrop are to the fore in identifying suitable varieties and cropping systems which will help to grow this sector. In particular, the company is number one in the market for spring OSR varieties, which is a crop that performs very well in Ireland with a lower capital outlay.
