Summary: The hypothesis of this study was that spring camelina (Camelina sativa L.) could be grown as a high-value crop under the moist, cool conditions of the Maritime Provinces in Canada and seeding date, seeding rate, and type of seeder will modify productivity and oil composition. The objectives were (1) to determine the optimum seeding date and seeding rate for ...

Summary: Evaluations of cultivar and applied N were performed at Truro, NS, Harrington, PEI, and Hartland, NB, in 2005 and 2006. The results show that the selection of cultivar is an important determinant for the potential success or failure of C. sativa production. Differences in plant stand, plant height, seed yield, oil content and fatty acid profile were found among ...

Summary: Crops of CS15 camelina and InVigor 9590 canola, grown under field conditions in Canada’s Salinity Tolerance Testing Facility, were evaluated for plant emergence, height, shoot biomass, grain yield, oil content and composition. Plant height differences between the camelina and the canola increased as salinity increased. Grain yields under salinity relative to the salt-free control decreased more for the camelina ...

Summary: Evaluation of seed and oil yield response of camelina to nitrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur nutrition in South Central Chile. Two experiments were conducted in four environments in 2008 and 2009. Results indicate that camelina, usually regarded as a low-input crop, may respond to high N fertilization rates when grown in environmental conditions that maximize seed yield potential.

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 ...

Summary: Camelina, a member of the mustard family, exceeded flax and rape in yield of seed per acre at Ottawa, Ontario, and at Fort Vermilion, Alberta. The oil content of the 10 varieties in the test ranged from 34.3% to 38% at Ottawa and from 37.1% to 42.0% at Fort Vermilion. Camelina matured 3 to 4 weeks earlier than flax. ...

Summary: In Montana, camelina is emerging as a high-value, multi-use crop with applications in food, feed, and industry. A diversity of start-up industries and government entities are in the process of sorting out the different uses for this crop. The multiple possible uses suggest to these authors that there may be a stable market demand for farm gate seed. Link: ...

Summary: Knowledge of germination temperature optima/range for brassicas is critical for inclusion of these crops into crop rotations. Variability in Brassica seed germination in response to temperature indicates that there may be the opportunity for flexibility in the planting dates over which these crops can be sown.

Summary: This study investigated the response of Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz to the availability of N and water availability and their effect on photosynthesis and yield parameters. Plant height, root and shoot dry matter, root:shoot ratio, xylem pressure potential, yield components, photosynthetic parameters and instantaneous water-use efficiency were remarkably influenced by water and nitrogen supply. Results suggest that the regulative ...

Summary: Examination of physiological and biochemical alterations during cold stress treatment. Particular emphasis on the post-translational regulation of the plasma membrane. Results suggest that cold stress and recovery in camelina and rapeseed are associated with PM H+-fluxes that may be regulated by specific translational and post-translational modifications.
