Smart Earth Seeds is committed to developing “the best Camelina cultivar out there” for producers and processors.
In Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, we are currently running the most comprehensive Camelina breeding program in North America. With access to one of the largest Camelina germplasm collections at Plant Gene Resources of Canada (PGRC) we are set on developing Camelina cultivars that provide a more competitive oilseed alternative for the grower, both from an agronomic and an economic standpoint.
Our Camelina breeding program focuses on improving the following agronomic traits:
- Seed yield
- Seed oil content
- Seed size
- Disease resistance
- Herbicide tolerance
