Through literature review, the study compares the effects of diverse fertilization types (mineral, organic, and mineral-organic) on wheat grain and rape seed quality parameters. It was emphasized that, balanced fertilization of plants is essential to maximize yield while maintaining its high technological quality and the technological value of wheat grain and rape seeds depends primarily on the genetic characteristics of their cultivars. In addition to genetic conditions, the qualitative characteristics of the generative yield are significantly influenced by agrotechnical treatments, including fertilization. The amount and type of fertilizer applied directly translates into the size and quality of the crop, determining its subsequent use (e.g. for consumption, fodder or energy purposes). It was noted that, in the scientific literature particular attention is paid to nitrogen fertilization and its impact on the yield and technological value of the feedstock. Much less emphasis is placed on the impact of fertilization with other mineral nutrients. This study reviews the literature to compare the effects of different types of fertilization (mineral, organic, and mineral-organic) on the qualitative parameters of wheat grains and rape seeds. The most important quality parameters for wheat and oilseed rape was presented in this paper- for wheat: yield, protein content, gluten content and quality, starch content, and sedimentation index. And for oilseed rape: yield, erucic acid content, oiliness, and glucosinolate content. This review results prove that there is a need for greater focus on the use of combinations of organic and mineral fertilizers. Reducing fertilizer use while maintaining or even improving seed yield and quality is an ongoing environmental and economic challenge. This can make sustainable production and agriculture more environmentally friendly, especially in the face of climate change.
