The effects of varied plant density and nitrogen fertilization on quantity and quality yield of Camelina sativa L. – M Czarnik, W Jarecki, D Bobrecka-Jamro – Emirates Journal of Food & Agriculture 2017

David Roberts Camelina Agronomics Leave a Comment

Summary: False flax (Camelina sativa L.), is an oil plant, of the Brassicaceae (Cruciferae) family. It is a rediscovered crop with multiple uses, it is a frost proof, low-soil and climatic conditions plant. In Poland the variety is not very widespread, despite of its health benefits. The particular value of camelina oil is given by its content in polyunsaturated fatty …

Yield Tradeoffs and Nitrogen between Pennycress, Camelina, and Soybean in Relay- and Double-Crop Systems – GA Johnson, MS Wells, K Anderson, RW Gesch, F Forcella and DL Wyse – Agronomy Journal 2017

David Roberts Camelina Agronomics Leave a Comment

Summary: To gain additional value from land during winter fallow periods in corn (Zea mays L.)–soybean [(Glycine max (L.) Merr.] rotations, growers in the Upper Midwest are considering winter annual oilseed crops such as field pennycress (Thlaspi arvense L.) and winter camelina [Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz]. The objective of this study was to (i) explore trade-offs between soybean and winter …

Agronomic performance and seed quality attributes of Camelina in multi-environment trials across Europe and Canada – F Zanetti, C Eynck, M Christou, M Krzyżaniak, D Righini, E Alexopoulou, MJ Stolarski, EN Van Loo, D Puttick, A Monti – Industrial Crops and Products 2017

David Roberts Camelina Agronomics Leave a Comment

Summary: Camelina is considered a relatively new oilseed in both Europe and North America even though its history as a crop dates back to the Bronze Age. Camelina has recently received renewed interest from both the scientific community and bio-based industries around the world. The main attractive features of this species are: drought and frost tolerance, disease and pest resistance, …

An update to the Canadian range, abundance, and ploidy of Camelina spp. (Brassicaceae) east of the Rocky Mountains – SL Martin, TW Smith, T James, F Shalabi, P Kron, CA Saudera – Botany, 2017

David Roberts Camelina Agronomics Leave a Comment

Summary: The distribution and abundance of three Camelina species introduced to Canada is unknown, but critical for evaluating the risks associated with unconfined release of transgenic Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz (2n = 40). Furthermore, previous reports suggest Canadian populations of Camelina microcarpa Andrz. ex DC. vary for ploidy and ability to hybridize with C. sativa. We completed 8 weeks of …

Camelina sativa as a fallow replacement crop in wheat-based crop production systems in the US Great Plains – A.K. Obour, C. Chen, H.Y. Sintim, K. McVay, P. Lamb, E. Obeng, Y.A. Mohammed, Q. Khan, R.K. Afshar, V.D. Zheljazkovg – Industrial Crops & Products 2017

Summary: Camelina has potential to diversify and intensify dryland wheat-based crop production in the US Great Plains. Field experiments were conducted to evaluate camelina as a fallow replacement crop in winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L) − fallow (W-F) crop rotation system across five locations in the Great Plains. Results showed both winter wheat and camelina grain yields varied across locations. …

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

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)

David Roberts Camelina Agronomics Leave a Comment

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 Leave a Comment

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 Leave a Comment

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 Leave a Comment

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 …
