Oil seed crops are very important for human food. Weeds are the most important issue of agriculture crop production. The best way to enhance the production of oilseed is to adopt the better management of weeds in crops and crop nutrition. The production of oilseed crops has not increased at the same rate as it has occurred in cereal crops. Rapeseed is very significant oilseed crop due to good amount of oil but faces severe problems and competition by weeds for nutrients and moisture, which consequently loss its potential yield under intense competition. The present review was executed with the following objectives; 1. To study the impact of row spacing and weed competition period on growth and yield of Rapeseed. 2. To evaluate the best row spacing and management strategies to control weeds and enhance production.

Keywords: Rapeseed, Oil, Row spacing, Weed competition.
