✅ Drought season hurting your yields?
✅ Lots of unused inputs and tired of leaching?
✅ Looking to improve your soil health?
✅ Looking for a way to combat those harsh Canadian winters?
✅ Want to invest in your local rural economies?
Smart Earth’s decades long breeding program has created the foundation for the world’s only elite varieties of Winter Camelina. It’s the Smart Answer to growing renewable fuel feedstock demand. Originating in the frigid Siberian climate, Winter camelina learned to survive in the coldest environments. This ancient oilseed can be planted in the fall. It needs a hard freeze during winter (vernalization) and starts growing again at the first signs of spring.
Offering competitive pricing and taking advantage of what many growers deem to be "oilseed offseason", this Canadian-grown crop is a great fit for your farm, if you are looking to:
✅ Reduce nitrate leaching in the soil. Camelina is an excellent scavenger of residual nitrate in the spring.
✅ Reduce nutrients losses by surface run off (P and N).
✅ Decrease soil erosion by keeping green soil cover in the spring.
✅ Find an annual winter crop that survives the winter in the northern Great Plain.
✅ Support threatened bee populations by providing early forage for bees at a time when nothing else is typically available.
✅ Find a crop that matures earlier, allowing it for relay and double cropping with soybean, early maturing sunflower, and forage sorghum.
✅ Inhibit reproduction of soybean cyst nematode (key as a cover crop in corn-soybean rotations)

Smart Earth Camelina Oil is high in Omega 3—with more vitamin E than flax oil. This makes it more stable to store. And equine and canine owners use it to supplement Omega 3s in their animals’ diet.
Plus, when you grow Smart Earth Camelina —you invest in your community. Our Camelina is crushed, cleaned, bottled, and sold locally. With two varieties developed (and one on the way), Smart Earth is ready to support producers in their crop production journey.
Finally, Smart Earth can help you achieve profitable yields on marginal land—where you can net less nitrogen, use less inputs, and enjoy a shorter growing season.
