Sterling Rapeseed (OTT case 97-028)

Summary – “Sterling” (Brassica napus L.) is a pure-line (near homozygous) spring industrial rapeseed cultivar with high erucic acid content in seed oil and canola-quality seed meal, selected for high adaptability to environments throughout the Pacific Northwest region (Idaho, Oregon, Washington and Montana). Sterling is similar in plant height, plant morphology and maturity to the spring rapeseed (canola) cultivar “Legend.” Oil quality of Sterling is significantly different from Legend, with Sterling having high erucic acid content (>45%) and Legend having less than 1% erucic acid content in seed oil. Fatty acid profile of Sterling is similar to that of the cultivar “Hero,” but significantly shorter.
