A General Overview of Innovative Uses for Camelina Seeds

Making a profit in Canadian agriculture can be very challenging, but Canadian agricultural producers have been successful largely due to the fact that they plant crops that are suitable to their special climatic and environmental challenges. To have a successful crop in Canada, an agricultural producer will need to plant crops that can tolerate frost and what amounts to a very brief Canadian growing season. It is also good for an organic producer in this situation to grow crops that can be marketed in a number of different ways, which will serve to maximize its potential marketability. Camelina is an example of a kind of crop that is being used in a number of different ways in Canadian agriculture.

Crops like Camelina, with their multiple agricultural applications, are sure to be highly sought after in the marketplace. What this means is that the crop itself will be quite easy for organic producers to market effectively. If you are an organic agricultural producer in Canada, no matter what size your operation, the versatility and marketability of Camelina make it an excellent crop to invest your time and effort into. When you factor this in with the fact that Camelina is a hardy crop with a short growing season of less than 100 days, and you can see why Canadian agricultural producers should seriously consider growing Camelina in the near future.

Camelina has numerous profitable uses that make it an excellent crop for today’s agricultural market. Recently, the CFIA, or Canadian Food Inspection Agency, approved Camelina seeds for use as chicken feed for poultry farms. This means that organic producers will have the potential to sell their Camelina crop to poultry farms on a regular basis. Another potentially profitable area in which Camelina is becoming an important crop is in the area of renewable resources. Much of the Camelina being grown today is being sold to the United States where it is being converted into sustainable bio fuel products. For these reasons the potential profitability of Camelina seems endless.

If you are an agricultural producer in Canada looking for a new crop for a high yield crop for your farm, the best place that you can look is at Camelina. Camelina is a hardy crop that does not only tolerate frost well, but also grows well in drought conditions and has a natural resistance to numerous types of pests such as the flea beetle, cabbage root fly, diamond back moth, and mustard sawfly, which also means that treatment with dangerous pesticides is completely unnecessary. Basically, Camelina is as close to a risk free crop as you are likely to find.
