Abstract

Camelina sativa is an oilseed crop that is increasingly used as a source of biopolymer and biofuel. Thirteen accessions were crossed in all pairwise combinations. Some crosses yielded progeny that exhibited best-parent heterosis for traits associated with seed yield, though mid-parent heterosis was more commonly found.
