New name, new logo!

This 5th issue of the GCIRC Newsletter will inform you on the post-congress news and events.
A major one being our new logo, chosen by the GCIRC board to realize the decision of the General Assembly to change of name and moto, as explained in the previous issue of this newsletter.


This 5th issue of the newsletter is the first occasion to show our new logo: we do hope that you will like it.
Beginning 2020, it will be on the homepage of our new website whose launching is expected for the new year.
Beyond reshaping the formal appearance of our association, “Building a World community for Innovation on Rapeseed and Canola” is a permanent effort for which everyone involved in rapeseed & canola research and innovation is involved, whatever his/her role in the GCIRC – the board, committees, as researcher, extensionist, etc…
The success of the 15th International Rapeseed Congress is a good indicator of the vitality of this world of research and innovation in Rapeseed and Canola: the concluding remarks of the congress by Prof Wolfgang Friedt duly record the progress made, highlight the challenges and open encouraging perspectives. Hope that we will go on with the innovation trend and see the results in 2023 in Sydney…
We welcome 12 new GCIRC members, which is also a very encouraging signal for this associ-ation, and we expect that many others will join GCIRC, for a better vision and development of rapeseed and canola research and innovation.

Activity/ News of the association:

The 15th International Rapeseed Congress, Berlin, June 16-19, 2019,

The 15th IRC was a real success regarding the quality and diversity of the communications and the participation of scientists from all regions of the world. The concluding remarks ex-posed at the end of the congress on June 19th by Wolfgang Friedt, President of GCIRC, offer an overview and remind us, 3 months later, of the top points of this memorable congress, and some notes about the life of GCIRC.

<<Ladies and Gentlemen,
First of all, I would like to thank you all for your valuable inputs and many different ways. I do hope that you have enjoyed the participation in the 15th International Rapeseed Con-gress as much as I did.
Please let me take the opportunity to recapitalize some highlights of the congress from my point of view.

Regarding the topics GENETICS, GENOMICS AND BREEDING, numerous approaches and technologies for investigating the OSR and Brassica genomes that did not even exist at the last congress have been established in recent years and are being applied. For example, the sequencing of long reads enabling the discovery of large and small scale genome structural variation in an unprecedented detail. This provides a great opportunity to understand chro-mosomal rearrangements or cytoplasmatic evolution in the interest of trait improvement. If someone had told you that one would instantly sequence several hundreds and even up to over thousand entire genomes of the worldwide rapeseed collection one would probably not have believed it. This enormous data resource enables the community to push the Pan Genome approach forward, which creates an extremely powerful data source to unlock the secrets of trait inheritance. For sure, this information will be a solid base for further under-standing the complex regulation of relevant traits. Especially at a time when sequence in-formation is doubling every few months, I am sure that there is still much to expect from this scientific area in the future.
But the mere description of DNA information is not enough: only the link to traits, i.e. agro-nomic or quality characteristics will make all of the thousands of Terabyte sequence infor-mation useful. In this regard, it is good to see that the better understanding of plant ge-nomes can make a significant contribution to breeding progress. Especially, contributions on understanding hybrid vigor, the development of heterotic pools and on the expansion of genetic pools and new ways of predictive breeding have been addressed.
A novelty that was already mentioned four years ago in Saskatoon but is now being imple-mented, targets the possibilities of genome editing. In the Mutagenesis and Genome Editing Session we have seen far-ahead possibilities for precise modification in unprecedented accu-racy, even in polyploid species like wheat or rapeseed (see final keynote by Gaixa GAO). Alt-hough, these technologies can currently not be practically applied in Europe because of legal restriction, recent statements from various European countries to make a fresh start to ad-just the “Genetic Engineering Act” give hope that local breeders may have access to these new opportunities in the future: Not only Breeders but also Farmers AND environment AND the whole society could benefit from such a change of setting.
Due to the attractiveness of the crop for farmers and industry and its strong extension in various regions, it also became attractive for all kinds of unwanted organisms living and feeding on the plant: So, DISEASES AND PESTS have gained undesirable importance in many growing areas. Therefore, the cultivation of oilseed rape is globally confronted with many challenges determining priorities of future rapeseed research and development.
Consequently, insect pests and fungal diseases are a serious threat for OSR today. Therefore, it is no surprise that more than one fourth of the contributed papers were submitted to this topic. Noteworthy, separate workshops have been organized in this field dealing with special pathogens and their control, i.e. blackleg, clubroot, and sclerotina. I would like to particularly thank the organizers and also the participants of all workshops very much again for their outstanding activity.

At the same time, the issue of protecting beneficial organisms has become very important recently. So, it is all the more gratifying that the congress has concretely devoted itself to this question. The ideal way to control diseases and pests would be of course to protect beneficial organisms while still providing effective protection against yield limiting pests and diseases. And where there are problems, there are also possible solutions which may be roughly summarized in three categories:
i) Technological advancement for safer use of pesticides:
For example, the smart idea of applying pesticides by a dropleg nozzle shows that technolo-gies for protecting the environment can be developed allowing a more sustainable applica-tion of agrochemicals. Therefore, chemical plant protection must not be ruled out in the future.
ii) With regard to the use of effective biocontrols and alternative coatings, this congress showed that the identification of such approaches have potential for future OSR production. Since not all techniques that seem promising in the laboratory would also work under field conditions and not necessarily make their way to practical application, such investigations of alternative agents are essential.
It was good to see that the idea of using beneficial fungi to prevent severe damage by clubroot and insects has been followed. To bring this forward a further and deeper under-standing of microbe - or insect - to-plant interaction is clearly required; this topic will proba-bly accompany us in the future.
iii) The best resistance strategy would be that the plant protects itself. Therefore, the ex-ploitation and systematic use of plant genetic variation for resistance breeding has high pri-ority: given that some of the pathogens, Verticillium for instance, cannot be cured by chemi-cal agents and that there are declining chemical options for plant protection - particularly in the EU - it is urgently required to try and discover genetic determinants of resistance or tol-erance which can be used in breeding for resistance to biotic stresses such as insect pests.
It has been a particular intention for the organizers to strengthen the topic AGRONOMY in the IRC 2019: this congress has probably been as much in context of climate change as no other congress before. The increasing frequency of extreme weather events makes us won-der whether and how rapeseed farming needs to be reshaped in the future. Although not every drought and every hot summer are attributable to climate change, on almost all conti-nents weather extremes have increased and somehow caused yield losses. In addition, the emergence of increasing environmental standards - taking the avoidance of nutrient (N) sur-pluses with their consequences on ecosystems and drinking water as an example – put fur-ther pressure on achieving high yield at justifying costs for environment. Several contribu-tions on plant physiology, nutrition and challenges for crop management and a special work-shop dealing with the management under environmental stress have improved our under-standing for above and belowground plant architecture, and the development of specialized tissues under abiotic stress. In light of the fact that the strong breeding progress achieved without any doubts is not always reflected in yield on the farm level, it is quite important to rethink and reshape the way OSR is cultivated and integrated in crop rotations and how the management can contribute to convert the knowledge in higher yields and better products.
MUSTARD AND OTHER CRUCIFEROUS CROPS: another intention of the IRC has been the des-ignation of a special session on mustards, reflecting their importance especially on the Indian subcontinent. I am not sure if this “experiment“ can be considered as successful. Rather, it deserves further consideration e.g. by the organizers of the coming IRC.

Given the tremendous challenges for OSR but at the same time the overwhelming growth of knowledge leading to upcoming and useful technologies providing solutions one could never imagine before, make me strongly believe that in four years from now the 16th IRC in Sydney/Australia will become at least as interesting and inspiring as the last four days here in Berlin.
In view of the growing population and the increasing consumption, there is obviously a rising demand for products of oilplants like rapeseed. Therefore, OSR cultivation is expanding in various regions of the world, for example in eastern Europe and Russia. Nowadays, the crop is not just esteemed for its healthy seed-oil, but the RS meal is also a valuable compound as feed not only for ruminants such as dairy cows but – as we have learned in several talks on ANIMAL NUTRITION – is more and more used as a protein-rich feedstuff for monogastric animals such as pigs and poultry. The local demand for non-GMO protein in Europe further boosts this development.
In addition, the rapeseed protein may also become a valuable commodity for HUMAN NU-TRITION as well. Changing consumer behavior causes a significant demand for vegetable protein products and opens more opportunities on sales market for OSR as ever before. This lets me strongly believe that OSR will have indeed a flowering future in the feed and the food area and beyond.
Major prerequisites for such a wishful development include:
• Better exploitation of yield potential in terms of farm yield via better adaptation of cultivars to abiotic stress and pathogens (i.e. complementation of chemical and biological approaches).
• Development of resilient agro-ecosystems by increasing crop diversity and improving crop rotations (i.e. diversification of cereal-centered agrosystems).
• Increase the added value of oilseed rape/canola via better exploiting the existing and potential diversity of valuable ingredients inside the rape seeds; e.g. improve and use rape-seed protein as a valuable alternative to animal protein.

All these scientific approaches and research activities will only be feasible and finally suc-cessful based on a strong and vital scientific community. As a well-established organization already established decades ago, GCIRC can better serve as this necessary basis. During the IRC 2019, the General Assembly of GCIRC has adapted and modified its constitution, based on corresponding suggestions and recommendation of the GCIRC Board. Major changes include:
I. The change of name: the acronym GCIRC from now on stands for “Global Council for Innovation in Rapeseed and Canola”.
II. The reduction of membership fee: from now on the personal fee will be 75 EUR (until now 120 EUR).

With these changes we do hope to broaden the awareness of GCIRC in the whole “rape-seed/canola world” and strengthen its scientific potential, significance and relevance in the future!

I will not close my conclusion without thanking all participants for your attention and all the people involved in the congress planning for their great input and tireless commitment: Thank you very much for your kind attendance and valuable contributions.
With that I wish you a further eventful stay in Berlin and Germany, exciting field trips and finally: a good and safe way back home.>>

Guided Post-Congress-Tours

As a special « present » to the IRC visitors from abroad, Field Tours to different regions in Germany relevant for rapeseed research and cultivation were organized: the North, the South and the West Tour. Whereas the first tour headed to locations in Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, the second aimed for the visit of relevant sites in southern Saxony-Anhalt and Saxony. Finally, the west tour lead to the medieval town of Quedlinburg in western Saxony-Anhalt where the large national research institution Julius Kuehn-Institute (JKI) is based. Here, participants could learn more about the applied research program on cultivated plants including rapeseed. On day 3, the Experimental Farm Rauischholzhausen of the University of Giessen in Hesse was visited; this tour provided an overview on field exper-iments on many crop species incl. rapeseed and official VCU-trials.
In this short report, we are focusing on the latter West Tour as an example.
The bus arrived in Quedlinburg (QLB) in the evening of June 19th, so that we had time for a guided city tour of the medieval city on the same evening. Then, we have got started with the visit of the JKI centre on the next morning, June 20th. After the welcome and introduc-tion by the Vice president of JKI, Prof. Peter Zwerger, and several senior scientists (Dr. Brandes, Mr Hausmann, Dr. Serfling, Dr. Will) gave us introductions into the whole institu-tion and their specific research projects in terms of field trials, greenhouse experiments fo-cusing on resistance research and pre-breeding activities: altogether a very informative and highly qualified tour of the JKI research centre at Quedlinburg.
During early afternoon we continued our bus tour to Marburg/Lahn (MR): again, a guided tour of the picturesque city in the evening. In the morning of June 21st, the bus brought us to the University of Giessen, Experimental farm of Rauischholzhausen, where Prof. Rod Snow-don, Head of the Plant Breeding Department, and several scientists incl. Dr. Obermeier, Dr. Stahl, Dr. Wittkop a.o. were waiting for the visitors. A very informative tour and introduction into various research projects on agronomical issues and breeding projects run at this farm using field and greenhouse studies included detailed demonstrations of the innovative work carried out at this active and prospering institute.
Foreign guests afterwards continued their journey via Giessen or Frankfurt railway stations and/or Frankfurt International Airport (accompanied and very well assisted by Florian Boe-nigk, WPR).
Participants have expressed their appreciation for the intense scientific and sightseeing pro-gram and the amount of information provided during this tour: it has been a great success!

16th IRC in Sydney, Australia

The GCIRC Executive board and General Assembly approved the proposition of Australia to organize the next 16th International Rapeseed Congress, in 2023, in Sydney, which will take place 24 years after the memorable Australian edition in Canberra, in 1999.
At the end of the Berlin Congress and following the tradition, Robert Wilson presented the next congress and hosting city.

“Dear Friends and Colleagues, it is a great pleasure to be able to invite you to you to be a part of the International Rapeseed Congress to be held in Sydney, Australia.
The Congress will run from 24-27 September at the International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney in one of the world’s most picturesque cities. Surrounded by a majestic Harbour and scattered with beaches, national parks and green areas, Sydney is a city that will entice you to explore. ICC Sydney is at the heart of its very own. Sydney harbour waterfront precinct, set amongst restaurants, retail and a vibrant public domain on Darling Harbour yet only a moment’s walk to Australia’s largest CBD, Barangaroo, local universities, Sydney Harbour Bridge and The Sydney Opera House.
Sydney – it’s closer than you think!”

• Rapeseed prices: Europe and Canada
UFOP reports that Rapeseed prices clearly exceed year-ago level. (https://www.ufop.de/english/news/chart-week/ see chart of the week 39)

“The small EU rapeseed crop and firm forward prices drove up producer prices for rapeseed considerably. Also, feedstock demand from oil mills picked up over the past weeks.
At the beginning of the 2019/20 marketing year, farm rapeseed prices climbed sharply. The rise was due to the small rapeseed harvest in Germany and the EU in 2019. At the beginning of July, prices were at EUR 354 per tonne. At the end of August, they already surpassed the mark of EUR 360 per tonne and most recently, they hit EUR 367 per tonne. In other words, rapeseed prices were up EUR 14 per tonne from the previous year and even EUR 20 per tonne from 2017.”

This information may be completed by another one reported by the US Canola Association: “Growers in Canada are allocating more land for barley, corn, dry peas, lentils and oats and fewer acres for canola, wheat, and soybeans in 2019, according to Statistics Canada.” See: https://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/canadian-farmers-expect-to-plant-fewer-canola-seeds-amid-ongoing-china-row-1.4483390. According to the Field Crops survey of Statistics Canada published in June, based on information on field crop seeded areas in Quebec, Ontario, Man-itoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta from May 14 to June 11, farmers reported planting 21 mil-lion acres of canola in 2019, which is down 8 per cent from 2018. The decrease was attribut-ed to lower prices for canola this year thanks, in part, to China’s ban on canola imports from Canada and high global supply of oilseeds, Statistics Canada said.

• France: a new methodology to monitor resistances to insecticides
Terres Inovia Crop Protection and Genetics Laboratory informs about a new methodology facilitating the monitoring of resistances to insecticides, after a presentation made during the 15th IRC in Berlin.
Terres Inovia presented an overview of the situation of resistances to pyrethroids insecti-cides in France. Data produced since 2013 show populations of cabbage stem flea beetle (Psylliodes chrysocephala) and rape winter stem weevils (Ceutorhynchus picitarsis) with sig-nificant decreases in sensitivity extend on French territory.
Results obtained in laboratory reveal a good correlation between pyrethroid sensitivity of these 2 insects’ species and mutations in sodium channel gene M918L (skdr) for cabbagestem flea beetle, and L1014F (kdr) for rape winter stem weevil. These genotyping were car-ried out thanks to a method developed in the crop protection and genetics laboratory of Terres Inovia. This is based on a SANGER sequencing technique and can also detect muta-tions responsible for resistances referenced in other insects (L925I and T929N).

This is a significant advance as this approach has improved resistance monitoring by increas-ing sampling. Indeed, characterization of sensitivity by genotyping requires only about 20 individuals (adults or larvae) whereas phenotyping analysis requires a minimum sampling of 250 fully active individuals, which represents often a restraint on analysis.
Resistance levels and understanding of the mechanisms involved are a necessity to effective-ly advise farmers. They make it possible to avoid unnecessary treatments in areas where efficacy of pyrethroids is poor, and to maintain acceptable levels of resistance through a suitable alternation of insecticides strategy in populations where mutations are not fixed.
Terres Inovia is pursuing these analyzes and has extended the method to other species of beetle insects. For more information, visit Terres Inovia's website.
