Summary: Camelina is an under-utilised Brassicaceae oilseed crop with promising food and non-food applications due to an unusual fatty acid composition of its seed oil. Therefore, high oil content and other seed quality characteristics are important to enhance the attractiveness of the camelina crop both for growers and processors. Results suggest that variation in agronomic and seed quality characters of camelina would clearly allow for an improvement of grain yield and oil content, whereas progress towards increased seed weight would be slow.
