Agrii’s leading HEAR rape for industrial oil production
Ideal for the North with high vigour and good light leaf
spot resistance

Variety Positioning

  • Oil from High Erucic Acid Rapeseed (HEAR) has a variety of industrial applications.
  • Rocca is Agrii’s leading HEAR variety, which has proven attractive, especially in the North, for its vigorous growth habit, improved light leaf spot resistance (7) and early maturity.
  • Suitable for all soil types and best drilled in the main drilling window.
  • Medium height but it requires a robust PGR programme as it has only moderate stem stiffness.
  • Average phoma/stem canker resistance, so monitor for this disease and spray as appropriate.
  • If growers want to move back into ‘00’ or HOLL contracts in the future then ensure an appropriate gap between oilseed rape crops and consider using Clearfield oilseed rape.
