Oilseed Production Using Camelina Under Varying Water Availability

Principal Investigator: Manny Encinias

Department: Extension Animal Science and Natural Resources

Project Description: The goal of this project is to define the agronomic and economic viability of growing oilseed crops in northeastern New Mexico. Developing new oilseed crop production can save water and enhace profitability for growers due to the multiple products derived from oilseeds. The information derived will be given to farmers so they can make sound economic choices regarding crop selection and management.
