Every spring bright yellow fields occur for a few weeks all over the world. These beautiful carpets of yellow are the Rapeseed crop blooming. Many may be familiar with this crop under its other name of Canola.
The crop grows to 100 cm (39 in) in height and the flowers are about 17 mm (0.67 in) across.
Crops from the genus Brassica, including Rapeseed, were among the earliest plants to be widely cultivated by mankind as early as 10,000 years ago.
Today Rapeseed is used for production of animal feed, edible vegetable oils, and biodiesel.
