Leckford Estate's rapeseed oil - production and processing

Growing and processing the rapeseed oil on the Leckford Estate provides an opportunity to explore the decisions being made at every stage of production. Spanning the primary, secondary and tertiary sectors the case study explores the use of new technology, staff motivation and the need to balance environmental concerns with a healthy crop. Curriculum linked worksheets (with answers) enable students to become experts in the market for oil seed rape, both locally and on the global commodities market.
