Camelina Benefits

Camelina is a short-season crop: time from seeding to maturity is only 85 to 100 days. Camelina possesses very good frost tolerance in the seedling stage and the full-grown plants exhibit good drought tolerance. This makes it an attractive oilseed alternative for Saskatchewan, particularly in the lighter soils of the southwest. Resistance to flea beetles and black leg disease, plus good shatter resistance, add to the agronomic benefits.
