A REPOSITORY FOR NEW INSIGHTS INTO THE HEAT AND DROUGHT STRESS TOLERANCE OF AN ANCIENT OILSEED. RESEARCH ON GOLD OF PLEASURE (Camelina sativa) Some plants are very sensitive to stresses, while others are hardy and continue to grow unperturbed when the field gets hotter or drier. The increasing stresses on agriculture from an accumulation of…
Pilot trials under agronomically relevant conditions are going to take place in Italy, Spain, France and UK to evaluate the response of camelina to diverse environments and to identify the lines most adapted to local conditions under specific management strategies.
The micro-plot trials on the camelina core collection will be run under diverse environmental conditions in Italy, Spain, France and UK during one growing season.
Several own project activities and events will be prepared and implemented as training for students at universities (academic project partners will adapt project workflows and results into practical training material for BS, MS and PhD students), and trainings for farmers and farming associations (one field day in Spain, Italy, France & UK each).
