Camelina Agronomics -

Seeding date influence on camelina seed yield, yield components, and oil content in Chile – M. Berti, R. Wilckens, S. Fischer, A. Solis, and B. Johnson – Industrial Crops and Products 2009

Summary: Camelina was introduced into Chile in 2008 as a biofuel feedstock and as an omega-3 supplement for the salmon feed industry. The objective of this (2008-2009) study was to determine optimum seeding dates to maximize camelina seed yield in South Central Chile. Spring type cultivars (Gold of Pleasure, Suneson, and Blaine Creek) were used. No disease or pests were observed except for Aster Yellows infestation. Link:
