This paper illustrates that the oilseed rape is not only popular in the U. K. as U. K. is not even one of the highest producers of the plant in the world. Currently, the European Union, Canada, India, China, and France have all produced oilseed rape in higher volumes than the U. K. This may perhaps be a reason that not all agricultural researchers back and support the level of funding that is given to the oilseed rape in the U. K. This notwithstanding, it is common knowledge that the crop has been an important crop that cannot be eliminated from the count of U. K’ s major crop productions.
In the opinion of Soeparjono, the problem that the U. K. has exhibited over the years about the oilseed rape is the approach to getting more yield. This is because not much has been done in terms of basic cultivation research that will lead to the understanding of basic cultivation and establishment methods that will ensure increased production. Most of the time, the attention of institutions and researchers have been on laboratory-based researchers that will ensure increased yield through unconventional means such as artificial insemination and other crop mutilation techniques.
Meanwhile, there are examples from countries like India who have 13% of its cropped land grown with oilseed rape that very common conventional farming practices can actually be the solution to the search in the U. K. for higher yield of the oilseed rape crop. As it is now, even though the U. K has seen a rise in production level comparing current levels to precious levels like 1965, there has not been a very steady and consistent growth trend.
The soil conditions within the U. K are very important determinants in the approach to focusing on conventional strategies to increase the yield of oilseed rape in the country. But to do this effectively, there are various cultivation strategies that must be considered with respect to the U. K. soil condition.
