Rapeseed 3 Introduction India is one of the largest rapeseed mustard growing countries in the world, occupying the first position in Area and second position in Production after China. The world production of Rapeseed/Mustard has been increasing at a rapid rate in several countries largely in response to the continuing increase in demand for edible oils and its products. Brassica (rapeseed mustard) is the second most important edible oilseed crop in India after groundnut and accounts for nearly 30% of the total oilseeds produced in the country. When compared to other edible oils, the rapeseed/ mustard oil has the lowest amount of harmful saturated fatty acids. It also contains adequate amounts of the two essential fatty acids, linoleic and linolenic, which are not present in many of the other edible oils. Major Producing Area Indian mustard (B. juncea) is cultivated in the states of Assam, Bihar, Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal as a Rabi crop. State District Rajasthan Alwar, Dholpur, Dungarpur, Jhalwar, Barmer, Bundi, Chittorgarh Bihar Gumla, Singhbhum west, Madhubani, Begusarai, Sitamrhi Haryana Faridabad, Bhiwani, Hissar, Mahendragarh Punjab Ludhiana, Bhatinda, Faridkot, Fathepur Sahib Orissa Sundergarn, Cuttack, Barughar, Dhenkanal
