CROP RESULTS ON THE CAMBIC CHERNOZEM FROM TIMIŞOARA IN SPRING-SEEDED CAMELINA SATIVA L. PUBLISHEDRoxana IVANOIU, Florin IMBREA, Petru MERGHES
Abstract. The needs of mankind for cooking oils are increasing. Cameline (Rom. lubiţa) (Camelina sativa Crantz) of the Cruciferous family has been cultivated for its seeds (30-35% oil) for more than 2,000 years. Researches on fertilisation have been carried on in the Timisoara area on a cambic, phreatic moist (low gleyed) decarbonated chernozem formed on loess-like deposits. Nitrogen and Phosphorus fertilisation has had a good influence on spring-seeded cameline crop. Spring-seeded cameline represents a future oil crop for the area under study.
