The research was conducted to determine the oil yield, oil content and fatty acid composition of different sowing dates in false flax (Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz) under Ankara dried condition in 2010-2011 vegetation season. Sowing dates were October 1, October 15, November 1 and November 15 in 2010, and March 15, April 1, April 15 and May 1 in 2011. In this study the experimental design was randomized complete block design with three replications. In research, the oil yield (kg/da), oil content (%) and fatty acid componenets were examined in different sowing dates. The values of oil content (%), oil yield (kg/da) among the different sowing dates ranged from 20,57 to 39,47 % and 0,32 to 129,78 kg/da, respectively. According to the result of this research, the first sowing date gave the highest value of the oil yield (129,78 kg/da). The highest oil content (39,47) was also recorded for the fourth sowing date. Fatty acids, linolenic acid (24,86-32,26 %), linoleic acid (18,45-23,36 %), oleic acid (16,03-17,59 %) and palmi tic acid (5,89-7,04 5%), were main oil components for all sowing dates
