Abstract:

This article focuses and reviews on the seed enhancement techniques in oilseeds, and highlights of new developments that may provide even more benefits in the future. Oilseed crops are grown primarily for the oil contained in their seeds. Oilseeds are rich in protein, the proteins in oilseeds can be fed either as part of the oil-intact seed, or as a meal from which the oil has been removed. Major objectives in oil crop improvement are enhancement of seed and oil yield, quality of oil according to its use, i.e. edible or industrial uses, breeding of varieties which fit in different cropping systems and breeding biotic and abiotic stress resistant/tolerant varieties. Oilseeds are in demand globally, and there is a need to identify and quantify the key issues for their seed enhancement to develop and support actions that will ensure a viable future of such crops.
