Smart Earth Seeds is dedicated to developing the best Camelina varieties available while working hand-in-hand with our growers to provide excellent production practices.

We are the leading global Camelina enterprise and we maintain a continuous plant-breeding program unmatched in scale and scope.

Our plant-breeding activities provide a significant pipeline of trait development to ensure maximum yield and profitability for our growers for years to come.

Camelina is a unique low-input dryland oilseed crop and is a high-yielding source of nutritionally important Omega fatty acids, delivered in a high anti-oxidant background. It provides excellent quality meal and oil for animal feed and aquaculture. Camelina can be produced on marginal lands with significantly lower inputs than other oilseeds such as canola while providing competitive yields. The oil profile is similar to flax in that it provides high-Omega oil but has greater oxidative stability than flax.

Camelina oil is in high demand for aquaculture, improving the N6:N3 ratio in farmed fish while delivering a more sustainable marine-free diet and so reduces the requirement to use fish oil. Camelina meal produces high-Omega eggs in layers and meat in broilers. Promising markets include dairy, companion pets and human health and nutrition.
