- HYHEAR 2 summer rape (Brassica napus L.) is the world’s second hybrid Roundup Ready® high erucic acid, low glucosinolate cultivar. On average, HYHEAR 2 yielded 12% more seed, 4 g kg⁻¹ more seed oil, but 8 g kg⁻¹ less meal protein than Red River 1861 Roundup Ready® high erucic acid, low glucosinolate summer rape. HYHEAR 2 has an erucic acid content of 51.6% in isolated field trials of HEAR lines and is adapted to the southern B. napus growing regions of western Canada.
