Summary: Camelina is considered a relatively new oilseed in both Europe and North America even though its history as a crop dates back to the Bronze Age. Camelina has recently received renewed interest from both the scientific community and bio-based industries around the world. The main attractive features of this species are: drought and frost tolerance, disease and pest resistance, ...

Summary: The distribution and abundance of three Camelina species introduced to Canada is unknown, but critical for evaluating the risks associated with unconfined release of transgenic Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz (2n = 40). Furthermore, previous reports suggest Canadian populations of Camelina microcarpa Andrz. ex DC. vary for ploidy and ability to hybridize with C. sativa. We completed 8 weeks of ...

Summary: Camelina has potential to diversify and intensify dryland wheat-based crop production in the US Great Plains. Field experiments were conducted to evaluate camelina as a fallow replacement crop in winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L) − fallow (W-F) crop rotation system across five locations in the Great Plains. Results showed both winter wheat and camelina grain yields varied across locations. ...

Evaluating agronomic responses of camelina to seeding date under rain-fed conditions – H.Y. Sintim, V.D. Zheljazkov, A.K. Obour, A.G. Garcia, and T.K. Foulke – Agronomy 2016 Summary: The potential to use camelina (Camelina sativa L.) as a bioenergy crop has increased the need to develop management practices that would improve sustainable production. This study evaluated the effects by cultivars (Blaine ...

Summary: Use of winter cover crops in Minnesota and South Dakota has been slow to be adopted. The short growing season and potential for late wet springs make cover crops risky to farmers with little economic return. The use of cash cover crops in this area offers the standard advantages of other cover crops, with the added benefit of harvesting ...

Summary: Camelina is an emerging oilseed crop suitable for biofuel production in dryland cropping systems of the northwestern United States. Currently, camelina growers have limited herbicide options available for weed control. Tolerance of camelina to PRE applications of quinclorac, S-metolachlor, dimethenamid-P, pendimethalin, and pyroxasulfone was evaluated at two locations (Kalispell in 2009 and 2010, and Huntley in 2010 and 2011) ...

Summary: The agronomic performance of Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz (camelina or false flax) sown in autumn and spring over two consecutive years was tested in northern Italy. Among the tested genotypes, CAM 40 showed the most adaptability to unfavorable environmental conditions but limited yield plasticity and CAM 172 demonstrated the most adaptability to favorable environmental conditions but high plasticity for ...

Summary: Five camelina cultivars of camelina species (Camelina sativa L.) were grown in the field at two levels of nitrogen (N) under the climate conditions of Hokkaido Island, Japan. The results of the study suggested that the seed pod and rachis are more important for photosynthetic carbon supply to the seed than the upper leaves. The presence of attributes like ...

Summary: As an evaluation of the effects of growth conditions on the quality of camelina seed, samples originating from 11 remote locations in Europe and in Scandinavia were analysed for content of oil, crude protein and crude fibre.

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 ...
