Evaluating agronomic responses of camelina to seeding date under rain-fed conditions – H.Y. Sintim, V.D. Zheljazkov, A.K. Obour, A.G. Garcia, and T.K. Foulke – Agronomy 2016 Summary: The potential to use camelina (Camelina sativa L.) as a bioenergy crop has increased the need to develop management practices that would improve sustainable production. This study evaluated the effects by cultivars (Blaine …

Using Cash Cover Crops to Provide Pollinator Provisions in the Upper Midwest. – C.A. Eberle, F. Forcella, J. Lundgren, K. Nemec, R. W. Gesch, W.E. Riedell, S. K. Papiernik, M. Thom – ASA, CSSA, ASSA (2014)

Summary: Use of winter cover crops in Minnesota and South Dakota has been slow to be adopted. The short growing season and potential for late wet springs make cover crops risky to farmers with little economic return. The use of cash cover crops in this area offers the standard advantages of other cover crops, with the added benefit of harvesting …

Camelina (Camelina sativa) Tolerance to Selected Preemergence Herbicides – Jha, P. and Stougaard, R.N. – Weed Technology 2013

David Roberts Camelina Agronomics 0 Comments

Summary: Camelina is an emerging oilseed crop suitable for biofuel production in dryland cropping systems of the northwestern United States. Currently, camelina growers have limited herbicide options available for weed control. Tolerance of camelina to PRE applications of quinclorac, S-metolachlor, dimethenamid-P, pendimethalin, and pyroxasulfone was evaluated at two locations (Kalispell in 2009 and 2010, and Huntley in 2010 and 2011) …

Agronomic evaluation and phenotypic plasticity of Camelina sativa growing in Lombardia, Italy – P. Masella, T. Martinelli, and I. Galasso – Crop and Pasture Science 2014

David Roberts Camelina Agronomics 0 Comments

Summary: The agronomic performance of Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz (camelina or false flax) sown in autumn and spring over two consecutive years was tested in northern Italy. Among the tested genotypes, CAM 40 showed the most adaptability to unfavorable environmental conditions but limited yield plasticity and CAM 172 demonstrated the most adaptability to favorable environmental conditions but high plasticity for …

Source-sink manipulation of Camelina sativa L. related to grain yield under stressful environment of Hokkaido, Japan – K. Fujita, et al- Soil Science & Plant Nutrition 2014

David Roberts Camelina Agronomics 0 Comments

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 …

Agronomic evaluation of camelina genotypes selected for seed quality characteristics – J. Vollmann, T. Moritz, C. Kargl, S. Baumgartner, and H. Wagentristl – Industrial Crops and Products – 2007

David Roberts Camelina Agronomics 0 Comments

Summary: Camelina is an under-utilised Brassicaceae oilseed crop with promising food and non-food applications due to an unusual fatty acid composition of its seed oil. Therefore, high oil content and other seed quality characteristics are important to enhance the attractiveness of the camelina crop both for growers and processors. Results suggest that variation in agronomic and seed quality characters of …

The effect of seeding rate, seeding date and seeder type on the performance of Camelina sativa L. in the Maritime Provinces of Canada – S. D. Urbaniak, C. D. Caldwell, V. D. Zheljazkov, R. Lada, and L. Luan – Canadian Journal of Plant Science – 2008

David Roberts Camelina Agronomics 0 Comments

Summary: The hypothesis of this study was that spring camelina (Camelina sativa L.) could be grown as a high-value crop under the moist, cool conditions of the Maritime Provinces in Canada and seeding date, seeding rate, and type of seeder will modify productivity and oil composition. The objectives were (1) to determine the optimum seeding date and seeding rate for …

The effect of cultivar and applied nitrogen on the performance of Camelina sativa L. in the Maritime Provinces of Canada – S. D. Urbaniak, C. D. Caldwell, V. D. Zheljazkov, R. Lada, and L. Luan – Canadian Journal of Plant Science – 2008

Summary: Evaluations of cultivar and applied N were performed at Truro, NS, Harrington, PEI, and Hartland, NB, in 2005 and 2006. The results show that the selection of cultivar is an important determinant for the potential success or failure of C. sativa production. Differences in plant stand, plant height, seed yield, oil content and fatty acid profile were found among …

Emergence, height, grain yield and oil content of camelina and canola grown in saline media – H. Steppuhn, K. C. Falk, and R. Zhou – Canadian Journal of Soil Science – 2010

David Roberts Camelina Agronomics 0 Comments

Summary: Crops of CS15 camelina and InVigor 9590 canola, grown under field conditions in Canada’s Salinity Tolerance Testing Facility, were evaluated for plant emergence, height, shoot biomass, grain yield, oil content and composition. Plant height differences between the camelina and the canola increased as salinity increased. Grain yields under salinity relative to the salt-free control decreased more for the camelina …
