MetadataShow full item record
Rapeseed is one of the important oil crops in the world. However, rapeseed could not be produced large areas in Turkey like other countries although it has more suitable conditions to grow easily. On the other hand, rapeseed is very suitable for fraying and biodesel. The study was conducted to determine the fatty acid composition of some rapeseed variety in Diyarbakır Province which is outh East Anatolian Region conditions in 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 growing seasons.. Five rapeseed variety (Catalina, Elvis, Jura, Licord and Orkan) were used in the study. Based on study results, , the highest palmitic acid obtained from Jura variety with 6,87 % and the lowest was obtained from Orkan variety with 6,29 %. The highest stearic acid was obtained in Catalina variety with 2,70 % and the lowest was obtained in Licord variety with 2,38 %. The highest Oleic acid was obtained in Elvis variety with 58,36 % and the lowest was obtained from Jura variety with 51,45 %. The highest Linoleic acid was obtained in Orkan variety with 21,21 % and the lowest was obtained in Licord variety with 19,32 %. The highest Linolenic acid was obtained in Licord variety with 10,33 % and the lowest was obtained in Catalina variety with 8,03 %. The highest Arachidic acid was obtained in Catalina variety with 0,33 % and the lowest was obtained from Elvis variety with 0,11 %. According to the two years average results from this study indicated that Elvis and Catalina variety in respect to fatty acid composition can be suitable in South East Anatolian Region.
