There are several candidate oilseed species that have been identified as compatible with a dryland winter wheat-fallow rotation. Of these species, Camelina sativa has been previously identified as being a promising species for the High Plains region. This is due to its short growing season, drought tolerance, cold tolerance and resistance to many of the insect and pest species that cause yield reductions in other Brassica oilseed ...
