We analyze the one loop corrections to hadronic Z decays in an R-parity violating extension to the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). Performing a global fit to all the hadronic observables at the Z-peak, we obtain stringent constraints on the R-violating couplings constants lambda' and lambda". As a result of the strong constraints from the b asymmetry parameters A_b and A_FB(b), we find that the couplings lambda'i31, lambda'i32, and lambda"321 are ruled out at the 1 sigma level,
