'Part A': 'Chemical composition and nutritive value of yellow-seeded' Brassica napus 'canola for poultry'. Plant selection programs directed towards the development of yellow-seeded canola are among approaches undertaken to reduce the fiber content, increase the protein content and to improve nutrient utilization. A relatively new initiative in breeding for yellow-seed coat color has been the development of yellow-seeded 'B. napus' canola. The objective of this study was to compare a new yellow-seeded 'B. napus' line with its black-seeded counterpart, both types originating from the same genetic background and produced under identical growing conditions in two consecutive years. 'Part B': 'Canola-quality yellow mustard' (Sinapis alba 'L'.): 'The effect of water-soluble fiber' ('mucilage') 'and fineness of grinding on the nutritive value of the seed'. The canola-quality 'Sinapis alba' (yellow mustard) species has potential as a high protein and high energy alternative to full fat soybean. The objective of the present study was to further investigate the effect of water-soluble fiber (mucilage) on broiler chicken performance and to explore the potential for improved energy utilization using the mucilage depolymerizing or viscosity reducing enzymes.
