CONTRIBUTIONS REGARDING THE PROMOTION OF TECHNOLOGICAL ITINERARIES IN RAPE CULTURE IN THE CONTEXT OF APPLYING SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE IN THE DOBROGEA PLATEAU PUBLISHEDLiliana Panaitescu
A series of physical and geographical factors, especially the south-eastern position of Dobrogea, its location within the Black Sea basin and the Danube valley, have determined a number of particularities in the structure, evolution and organization of the rural space in general and the agricultural one in particular. All these involve a certain structure of the cultures and a certain distribution of the categories of field utilization, as well as a distribution of the localities. Lately, rape has been a lucrative culture. Because the rape oil demand is higher than the supply, the whole harvest can be quickly sold for satisfying prices. This paper presents an analysis of the rape culture in the country and in Constanta county in the last few years, a technological itinerary applied in production conditions for rape cultivation in the Dobrogea plateau, in the context of applying a sustainable agriculture with environmentally-friendly technological links. Also, the paper presents the results obtained regarding the average number of siliques on a plant, the average number of grains in a silique, the mass of one thousand grains, the average mass of grains on a plant and the production obtained in some of the rape hybrids that were studied.
