Camelina Yield Response to Different Plant Populations under Dryland Conditions – K.A. McVay and Q.A. Khan – Agronomy Journal – 2011

Summary: A 2-year field study was conducted in Montana under dryland conditions to evaluate the effects of stand reduction at rosette and bolting growth stages on camelina grain yield and quality and to determine if camelina has compensatory ability for grain yield after a stand loss. Camelina showed good compensatory ability for grain yield across a wide range of plant populations. Implications that stand loss due to hail damage or other environmental conditions at bolting or later growth stages may cause delayed and uneven maturity which may result in harvesting problems and/or increased shattering losses.
