Camelina Seed - Camelina is used to produce bio-diesel, cooking oil and jet fuel. Planting rates vary from 6 to 12 lbs. per acre depending on soil type and geographical planting area. Camelina should be fertilized with a minimum of 50 units of Nitrogen to obtain the high end of the seed yields. Expected seed yields are between 500 and 2500 lbs per acre. Camelina seed contains approximately 39% oil. 20-21 lbs of Camelina seed will produce approximately 1 gallon of oil. Camelina has been much in the news of late, as a biofuels feedstock of strong promise, because of its position as one of the few “sustainable, affordable, reliable, available” feedstocks suitable for aviation biofuels.
