Here’s a new article on the adaptation and performance of camelina that will be published soon in Field Crops Research. Camelina is a Brassica family oil seed crop that has demonstrated potential for production in the Pacific Northwest and is thought to have a place as a rotation crop for small-grain cereals and grass seed crops. This work was led by Stephen Guy at Washington State University, a member of our research team.
Several key findings from the work include:
- Planting camelina in the spring produced higher seed yields than planting in the fall.
- Seed yields ranged up to 2948 lbs/acre across the four study sites.
- With increasing seed yield, oil content of the seed was reduced.
