A calibration equation for NIRSystems 6500 instrument was derived at VSTE Jevíčko using the measurement of broad collection of Czech samples of winter rape, allowing sufficiently accurate prediction of content of dry matter (DM), crude protein (XP), crude fat (XL), glucosinolates (GSL), oleic and linoleic acids in an extremely short time. The prediction accuracy was verified on a validation file (n = 60). The coefficients of determinance (R2) were 0.83 for XP, 0.71 for XL, and 0.84 for GSL. The prediction accuracy according to the VSTE equation was compared to the prediction accuracy according to the VDLUFA calibration equation (Kassel, FRG) used in EU near infrared spectroscopy network. It was stated that the former was not distinctly worse. Non-destructive NIR-analysis of the whole seed also allows sowing selected seeds in the year of harvest and thus accelerates the breeding cycle.Keywords:
