Camelina Agronomics -

Variation in agronomic characteristics and seed oil composition of new oilseed crops in central Italy – L. G. Angelini, E. Moscheni, G. Colonna, P. Belloni, and E. Bonari – Industrial Crops and Products May 1996

Summary: Several industrial oilseed crops, including camelina, were considered for agronomic traits and seed oil composition during a 3 year trial in Central Italy in the 1990s. Mean oil content was influenced by climatic conditions, decreasing in the driest seasons. Some species showed good agronomic traits, including tolerance to drought and to high temperature, making them potentially suitable for cultivation in the Mediterranean area.
