Walsh, K. D., Puttick, D. M., Hills M. J., Yang R.-C., Topinka, K. C. and Hall, L. M. 2012. Short Communication: First report of outcrossing rates in camelina [Camelina sativa(L.) Crantz], a potential platform for bioindustrial oils. Can. J. Plant Sci. 92: 681-685. Outcrossing rates in camelina were low (0.09-0.28%), suggesting camelina is a primarily self-pollinated species. Outcrossing was affected by flowering synchrony influenced by planting date as well as direction and distance (20, 40 or 60 cm) from the pollen source. Pollen-mediated intra-specific gene flow is unlikely to prohibit the development of camelina as a bioindustrial platform. Short distance outcrossing results will be used to design experiments to evaluate outcrossing rates at a field scale.
