In the 2015/16 marketing year rapeseed gross production in Russia reached slightly more than 1000 KMT. This result was obtained in conditions of decreasing planted area for the second consecutive seasons to 1038 Th ha compared with record 1326 Th ha in the 2013/14 marketing year. In addition to acreage reduction, the productivity has also declined to 1.12 MT/ha.
