What is TORIA Oil?

TORIA is very hath successful as an additional oilseed crop though is not cultivated as a main crop due to its low-yield potential. Being of short duration it can fit well as a relay crop between the kharif and rabi crops. A number of farmers are taking an early crop of paddy, while others have the fallow area due to one or the other reason. All such areas can be brought under
toria cultivation as no other crop except fodder can be grown after which the rabi crop can be harvested. The areas around cities grow toria for marketing the crop for saag as the crop is early in maturity and can be sown earlier than sarson or gobhi sarson.

The crop is considered to have low potential yield and much attention is not given to it but actually it is not true. Viewed in terms of seed yield per unit area per unit time the toria crop is as efficient as raya and sarson and more efficient than gobhi sarson.

Punjab University recommends two varieties of toria PBT-37 and TL-15 for general cultivation.
PBT-37 is an early maturing variety suitable for toria-wheat rotation. It takes 91 days to mature. It has long main shoot laden with pods and has profuse branches. The seeds are bold and dark brown in colour. Its average yield is about 5 q/acre though it has the potential to yield as high as 6 q/acre. Another recommended variety TL-15, matures in 88 days. Its average yield is 4.4 q/acre in farmers field. 
Rapeseed oil is low in #saturated fat, so has been hailed for its #health benefits and also has other #nutritional bonuses….

                                            It contains #Omega 3, 6 and 9 which reduces #cholesterol and help to                                                          maintain healthy Joint, Brain and Heart functions. As it is high in mono                                                          unsaturated fats, it is one of the only un-blended oils that can be heated to a                                                high frying temperature and not spoil its #antioxidants, character, color or                                                       flavor. The delicate but pleasant taste of rapeseed oil means it can be                                                           consumed in its cold, natural form served as a dressing or dip.

                                             However, it can also be heated and used in shallow and deep-frying, baking                                                 and roasting. Its delicate flavor does not bleed out during the cooking process                                               so it is a good, neutral fat. If a recipe doesn’t call for rapeseed in particular, it                                                 can be used in place of other oils, in particular #Olive Oil. Rapeseed oil can                                                   be stored like any other oil for many months, as long as it’s in a sealed                                                         container and stored at room temperature in an area shielded from sunlight.
