Summary: Evaluation of several planting dates and two planting methods for camelina stand establishment and seed yield. Field experiments were conducted for three years at four distinct rainfed agro-environments in the Pacific Northwest, USA. Although camelina has excellent cold hardiness, the best plant stands were achieved with the late-winter and early-spring plantings. We recommend late February–early March as the best overall planting date and broadcasting over drilling as equal seed yields can be accomplished more quickly at less expense. Link:
