Development of Camelina as a Low-Input Oilseed Crop for OR, ID, HI and WA

Project Coordinator:

  • Russ Karow, Head, Crop and Soil Science, Oregon State University

Research Leaders:

This was a three-year project with four defined objectives:

  1. to determine the optimum planting date for camelina across the PNW;
  2. to identify from among available germplasm that best adapted to the PNW;
  3. to explore nitrogen fertility needs of camelina grown in different environments in the PNW; and
  4. to share research findings through publications, field tours, grower meetings and other venues to allow camelina to become a viable part of cropping systems across the PNW. 

2007-08 was the first crop year of this study.  2009-10 was the last year.  A publication is being written to share findings in each study area. NO SPECIFIC WORK ON CAMELINA PRODUCTION IS BEING DONE AT THIS TIME.
