The 3rd Day of Rapeseed Fields organized by Oil Factory Čepin
More than 250 guests of the traditional Day of Rapeseed Fields were interested in the presentations of the rapeseed hybrids, which were held on the experimental field Josipin dvor.
On Thursday, 06 June, a total of 43 rapeseed hybrids were presented by eight seed vendors: Pioneer, Institute NS, Agronomist, RWA, Dekalb, BC Institute, KWS and Syngenta. The results of the trials provided producers with new information on the rapeseed hybrids and the use of agrotechnical measures.
After visiting the experimental field, socializing continued at TerraNegra Country Club in Čepin, where gathered enjoyed in good food and music for the rest of the day. All guests were welcomed by Marko Pipunić, CEO of Žito Group.
This year, according to estimates, 10 to 15 percent less surface area is under the rapeseed due to poor assemblies and potentials. Although the season 2018/2019. will be remembered by many unusual and unprecedented phenomena as a result of climate changes, these conditions have allowed manufacturers to come to realisation rapeseed is well adapted to extreme conditions. The rapeseed status is satisfactory and the harvest start can be expected on July 1st.
Oil Factory Čepin, as it was previous years, is interested in buying all the quantities of rapeseed with regard to the processing capacity of 150 000 tons of oilseeds. Last year were processed 40,000 tons of rapeseed, 70,000 tons of sunflower and 25,000 soybeans in Oil Factory Čepin and the buying capacity is between 50,000 and 60,000 tons.
