Starting harvesting season. Camelina

At the end of October, we showed you the camelina sowing work. After months of caring for the crop, mainly aided by a fairly good amount of rainfall, the camelina is now ready to be harvested. With camelina, we start the 2024 harvest season . This season looks promising, as the weather has been favorable throughout the winter.

Regarding to camelina, it's important to note that it is harvested with a combine harvester, making the process straightforward. The care and labour required for this crop is similar to those for pulse vegetables.  Our yields have been around 1,000 kg/ha , which is quite a good result. This was our first year sowing camelina, and the experience has been positive. It is now an additional crop to be considered, aiding us in the crop rotation we need to implement annually. The Camelina Company provided us with the seed and now they buy the production as well. All this is fixed in a contract.

We will be adding photos of the harvest of our various crops: barley, wheat, triticale, and pulse vegetables (lentils, etc.).

Finally, I would like to wish all farmers a successful harvest season with good yields. If any of you would like to share your work with us, we look forward to receiving your comments and photos.
