Vistive

Vistive is a new range of winter oilseed rape producing healthy, stable frying oils with a high oleic, low linolenic fatty acid profile (HOLL). Unlike standard rapeseed oil Vistive oil requires no hydrogenation to make it stable when being used at high temperatures and so offers major health benefits from greatly reduced levels of transfats which are produced from the hydrogenation process.

We Holl Vistive
  • New generation vistive hybrid with significant premium opportunity
  • Very high gross output with low linolenic acid content
  • Good autumn vigour, medium early flowering and early to medium maturity
  • Good all year round disease resistance
  • A taller hybrid which responds well to growth regulation
V324  [download PDF]
We Holl Vistive
  • New Generation HOLL hybrid with premium opportunity
  • Very High gross output with Low Linolenic acid and High Oleic acid content
  • Good autumn vigour, mid flowering and mid maturity
  • Good all round disease resistance
  • Medium autumn growth habit means V324OL is suitable for the early as well as the main window
  • Low Disturbance establishment systems may reduce germination of non-HOLL volunteers
  • A taller height means PGRs should be considered at stem extension especially when growing conditions are favourable and a large canopy exists to manage height

What's involved in growing HOLL OSR?

Agronomy

HOLL oilseed rape has no specific agronomic needs that differ from conventional oil seed rape (OSR) varieties. The main differences come in preventing contamination to ensure the quality of the High Oleic, Low Linolenic oil profile is preserved. Growers are advised to take the following factors into consideration:

Volunteer Control

It is important to minimise non-HOLL OSR contamination. It does not need to be virgin OSR land but a break of 4 or more years is requested, potentially less if volunteer control has been good. Using stale seedbed techniques to control volunteers is advised. Use best practice regarding the movement of drills or combines from other oilseed rape crop types. Be particulary careful to keep HOLL OSR crops and grain away from HEAR OSR crops and grain.

Weed Control

As well as volunteers, some weed species naturally contain high levels of linolenic fatty acids or erucic acid. If a significant contamination is found and can't be eliminated then it should be harvested separately and a sample sent for oil quality analysis.

Harvesting & Storage

It is important to be able to segregate HOLL crops from other oilseed rape crop types during harvesting, storage and transportation. It is also advisable to store any part of the crop separately that may be contaminated by volunteers or weeds until oil quality has been analysed.
