Abstract

The aim of this project was to develop in the first instance, a method for determination of the total glucosinolate (GSL) content in rapeseed,which could readily be adopted by a non-specialist chemical laboratory. Chapter 2 of this thesis describes a rapid yet simple assay which employs a reflectance measurement. This method is capable of being used by plant breeders and non technical personnel at collection points of silos.
