Weed suppression capacity of camelina (Camelina sativa) against winter weeds: The example of corn-poppy (Papaver rhoeas) – N. Codina-Pascual, J.Torra, B.Baraibar, A.Royo-Esnal - Industrial Crops and Products 2022

In this study, the capacity of camelina to reduce the growth and seed rain of corn poppy (Papaver rhoeas L.) was studied. Due to the short life cycle of camelina and its earlier harvest date, the potential seed production of P. rhoeas was reduced by 34% in 2018–19, 52% in 2019–20% and 70% in 2020–21, while this reduction was of 23% in 2018–19% and 56% in 2020–21 in barley. The capacity of camelina to reduce the presence of corn poppy and its seed production in semiarid conditions should be considered as a tool for integrated weed management.
