Camelina Catch Cover Crop

Camelina Company’s short cycle varieties can be grown as a catch cover crop (CCC). The cultivation approach relies on sowing immediately after the harvest, replacing a fallow land period or a cover crop with a camelina CCC with harvest possibility before the next main crop sowing. If the conditions are not met for harvest, camelina will have performed as an excellent cover crop.
