It is indeed what you would call canola.

We call it koolzaad here (never knew the English name until I saw it on WW). When we first lived in the polder before they'd done much building our house faced fields of it, absolutely beautiful!

I remember in the 1980's & '90's Beekeepers would move their hives into the Rape fields, they would get plenty of honey and the farmers would get plenty of set Rapeseeds ensuring a good yield of oil. Don't know if any still do it now.
