This Special Issue comprises selected/extended papers from the 14th International Rapeseed Congress (https://event-wizard.com/irc2015/0/welcome/) held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, the most comprehensive forum for discussing advancement in the rapeseed/canola industry. The congress covers topics including advances in discovery sciences (e.g., genomics, molecular biology), plant breeding strategies, crop protection (from, for example, diseases, insects, weeds), climatic stress (e.g., drought, heat), seed quality and utilization, nutritional value of oil and meal, agronomy, crop management, and economic and policy issues (e.g., regulatory systems, international trade). Papers selected for this Special Issue will be subject to a rigorous peer-review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications.
