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 extended source area for grain filling and high α-linolenic acid content of leaves is an indicator for successful adaptation of Camelina in the stress-prone environment of Hokkaido Island.
