Summary: An 8-year field experiment was conducted from 2010 to 2017 at the WSU Dryland Research Station near Lind, WA to compare a 3-yr winter wheat (WW)-spring camelina-summer fallow (SF) rotation with the traditional 2-yr WW-SF rotation. Annual crop-year (Sept. 1-Aug. 31) precipitation ranged from 193 to 375 mm and averaged 281 mm. Camelina seed yield ranged from 339 to 1175 kg/ha and averaged 643 kg/ha. Mean WW yield of 2692 kg/ha in the 3-yr rotation was significantly lower (p = 0.046) compared to 2862 kg/ha in the 2-yr rotation. Soil profile water was significantly lower (p < 0.001) after...

Summary: Camelina seeds were grown during the fall 2015 season on Konya ecological conditions by using 4 different sowing dates and 2 different genotypes (population characterized "Russia" originated genotype; certified variety "Suneson" originated from USA) with the aim of determining efficiency and some agronomical features.Statistically significant differences were obtained for blooming period, vegetation period, height of the plant, number of capsules, height of the first capsule, weight of thousand seeds, oil ratio and resistance to winter for the differences amongst sowing dates. The study showed that the Russian genotype with...

Summary: Nitrogen and water availabilities are two important environmental factors affecting crop growth and yield. Effects of applied Nitrogen and water deficit imposition on photosynthesis rate, transpiration rate, stomatal conductance, and shoot and root biomass accumulation in camelina and canola were compared in a greenhouse. Water deficit significantly decreased Pn, E, gs, and shoot/root biomass ratio in both crops. The relative reduction of Pn, E, and gs caused by water deficit was greater in canola than in camelina. Under drought conditions, applied N enhanced Pn and gs but had less...

Summary: Currently, camelina is not used as a cover crop but it has the potential to be used as such in maize and soybean cropping systems. The objective of this study was to determine the agronomic performance of winter camelina intersown as a cover crop into standing soybean or maize prior to their harvest. Experiments were conducted in Fargo, ND ...

Summary: Nitrogen (N) and water availabilities are two important environmental factors affecting crop growth and yield. Effects of applied N and water deficit imposition on photosynthesis rate (Pn), transpiration rate (E), stomatal conductance (gs), and shoot and root biomass accumulation in camelina [Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz] and canola (Brassica napus L.) were compared in a greenhouse. Water deficit significantly decreased ...

Summary: Camelina is an industrial oilseed crop in the Brassicaceae family with multiple uses. Currently, camelina is not used as a cover crop, but it has the potential to be used as such in maize-soybean-wheat cropping systems. The objectives of this study were to determine the agronomic performance and nutrient scavenging potential of winter camelina in comparison with other common ...

Summary: Camelina is a promising low-input, high yielding biodiesel crop that can be suitable to grow on marginal lands and is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. The objective of the study was to compare the rate of growth in different varieties of C. sativa in response to salt stress. Three biological replicates were collected from three varieties of ...

Summary: Interest in growing camelina is increasing for animal nutrition and for biofuel. A trial was carried out in a greenhouse with camelina cv. ‘Calena’ cultivated in pots in order to evaluate the effect of residual poultry manure and mineral fertilization after a crop of barley and to determine the grain’s yield and quality. The treatments applied to the first ...

Summary: False flax (Camelina sativa L.), is an oil plant, of the Brassicaceae (Cruciferae) family. It is a rediscovered crop with multiple uses, it is a frost proof, low-soil and climatic conditions plant. In Poland the variety is not very widespread, despite of its health benefits. The particular value of camelina oil is given by its content in polyunsaturated fatty ...

Summary: To gain additional value from land during winter fallow periods in corn (Zea mays L.)–soybean [(Glycine max (L.) Merr.] rotations, growers in the Upper Midwest are considering winter annual oilseed crops such as field pennycress (Thlaspi arvense L.) and winter camelina [Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz]. The objective of this study was to (i) explore trade-offs between soybean and winter ...
