Describes production of rapeseed for oil in Montana. Rape is less drought resistant than cereal grains and uses more water. Because of disease and pest problems, rape should not be grown on the same land more often than every 4 years. It also should not be grown in close rotation with potatoes, sunflower, field beans, field peas,mustard, or other crucifers. A production budget indicates net returns of $6/ac.
