Kansas State researchers narrowing in on best camelina cultivars

June 15, 2017 |

In Kansas, researchers from Kansas State University looked at the interaction between genotype and environment on camelina seed yield, oil content, and fatty acid composition across two locations in the U.S. Great Plains over three growing seasons using three different varieties. Yields in Montana were shown to be more than 50% higher than those in Kansas as was oil content but fatty acid contents were higher in Kansas. The Blaine Creek variety produced the greatest seed among the camelina genotypes studied.
