In the central zone of Spain and in particular within the El Encín farm in Alcalá de Henares, we have worked on the comparison between camelina crops with a summer cycle and in winter. Different varieties have been tested and compared with those of the winter cycle. It is a species that is being introduced into the dry lands of Castile and is used as an energy crop and for cattle feed. We have used conventional cereal machinery to manage the cultivation of camelina. Camelina is a crop that is tolerant to drought and frost; of sowing normally in autumn and is an excellent crop in rotation with cereal. The recommended dose is 8 kg / ha and the surface depth is less than 1 cm. The harvest is done when the fruits change from green to creamy yellow. We have made the comparison with a crop cycle in summer with the most usual cycle, we present the data in this congress, which are lower.
