dc.description.abstract The Sinapis alba (white mustard) species holds great potential as a high protein and high energy alternative to full fat soybean. It has superior heat and drought tolerance in comparison to conventional canola, and is therefore well suited to production in dryland areas. Although it has been grown for sometime as a condiment crop, it is only recently that plant breeders have developed a S. alba cultivar with low contents of glucosinolates and erucic acid. The objective of these studies was to evaluate the nutritive profile of S. alba and to explore the potential for use of the full fat seed in monogastric animal nutrition. Detailed chemical characterization of S. alba in comparison with selected feedstuffs (ie., soybean, canola, lupin and peas) was done. (Abstract shortened by UMI.) en_US
