Profile

Menthal CR is a very high yielding hybrid and DSV’s first spring rape which offers the added benefit of clubroot resistance. Menthal is resistant to the most common strains of clubroot, it allows spring rape to be grown in areas previously unable to grow the crop. Not only does Menthal have good yield it also has a very high oil content.

Menthal CR is recommended for land which has been infected with the common strains of clubroot. Menthal CR may however, (in common with all clubroot resistant varieties) be infected by some strains and infections .

Menthal CR is slightly later to flower and mature than some of the other spring rapes available but this does help to spread the harvest load and realistically would only be 2 or 3 days later than the other varieties. Menthal has a thick dense canopy filled with pods and has good resistance to lodging.

  • Clubroot resistant spring oilseed rape
  • Very high yield and good oil content
  • Medium to late maturity
