Summary: An imaging method was developed to evaluate crop species differences in root hair morphology using high resolution scanners, and to determine if the method could also detect root hair responses to soil water availability. This novel approach to in situ rhizosphere imaging should be useful in future studies of rhizosphere interactions and crop water and nutrient management.

Summary: Temperature response and the potential for heat acclimation were evaluated for Camelina sativa. Moderate heat stress caused a reduction in camelina seed yield. The fact that photosynthesis exhibited no acclimation to moderate heat stress will likely impact the development of camelina and other cool season Brassicaceae as sources of bioenergy in a warmer world.

Summary: With increased emphasis for diesel substitution, production of brown mustard, canola and camelina used as biodiesels may increase in the USA High Plains. The aim of this study was to elucidate the growth pattern of these crops when spring-planted (2005-2007) in western Nebraska. Fatty acid composition was dramatically different between the crops as previously reported. The growth patterns of ...

Summary: Mixed cropping peas with false flax, a brassica oil seed crop, in additive arrangements had a significant suppressive effect on weed coverage. Weed suppression was probably achieved by a mutually enhanced competitiveness of both crop components, indicating a mechanism based on resource allocation, but further research is needed for a better understanding of weed suppressive traits in pea–false flax ...

Summary: Spring barley is the most widely grown cereal in Lithuania. One of several organic solutions to the problem of spreading weeds lies in growing Camelina sativa as cover crop between the barley plantings. A series of experiments confirmed that camelina could effectively limit the prevalence of weeds under certain soil properties and weather conditions. Drilling camelina in strips between ...

Summary: Mixed cropping with oil crops and the integration of hedges offer chances to increase land use efficiency, decrease GHG emissions and maintain food production. Link: http://orgprints.org/17119/1/11_Paulsen.pdf

Summary: Organic mixed cropping systems of peas, lupins or spring wheat together with camelina were tested in field trials over three years at two sites. In mixed cropping systems, false flax could compensate for yield gaps of the legumes. Yields of spring wheat in mixed cropping were normally lower than the corresponding yields of the sole cropping system. Advantages in ...

Summary: Pea and camelina intercropping succeeded in spreading the crop yield loss burden. Peas did well in low slope positions, while camelina established better in upper slope positions. Relative emergence between the crop and weeds was critical. Where camelina was able to emerge and establish faster than the weeds, dry matter production was higher. Therefore, practices contributing to quick crop ...

Summary: A 2-year field study was conducted in Montana under dryland conditions to evaluate the effects of stand reduction at rosette and bolting growth stages on camelina grain yield and quality and to determine if camelina has compensatory ability for grain yield after a stand loss. Camelina showed good compensatory ability for grain yield across a wide range of plant ...

Summary: Description of the phenological development of C. sativa is proposed utilizing the extended BBCH (Biologische Bundesantalt, Bundessortenamt and Chemische Industrie) scale (Meier et al., 2009). The different phenological growth stages are described, utilizing both the two- and three-digit BBCH coding system. Link: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1744-7348.2010.00444.x/abstract
