Camelina is an under utilized alternative grain crop with very high potential. Also known as false flax and can be used similarly for oil production. We are not the biggest fans of vegetable oils but camelina just might be the perfect healthy replacement for the scourge of canola. Grown in Europe for at least 3,000 years, where it is used for cooking and as a base for salad dressing. In Poland there is a particular kind of camelina oil that is registered with the EU as a traditional specialty. Contains up to 45% Omega-3 fatty acids. Very high yields from spring plantings.
As required by the Oregon Department of Agriculture and the Washington Crucifer Quarantine, all Brassica family seed lots have been tested and found negative for blackleg (Phoma lingam) by an approved, certified lab.
