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.
