Considering the necessity of complex preparation and efficient biomass valorization, as well as the high utility potential of rapeseed cultures, for this study we focused on quality indicators for two rapeseed genotypes. The purpose was to find optimal solutions in order to extend the rapeseed crops and increase the production capacity for this source of rich vegetal fats and proteins. The monofactorial experiment included two hybrid types of autumn rapeseed, which were cultivated in optimal technological conditions, in four repetitions. The experimental variants used are V1 – Maximus PT225, and V2 – Perla autumn rapeseed genotypes. We evaluated the plant’s size, the height of the insertion point for the first silique, number of siliquae, Weight of 1000 seeds, seed production, as well as protein, fat, starch, and glucosinolates content, in percentages, and made a comparative analysis. The Maximus PT225 hybrid performed better than the Perla type in most evaluated aspects, except for the starch content. The glucosinolates content was between safe concentrations for both human and animal consumption. The difference in profit values obtained was negligible, both variants proving economic efficiency. The results show that these two types of autumn Rapeseed can be successfully cultivated in Romania’s Western area, in optimal conditions.
