Abstract

This research was conducted to determine fatty acid composition of different false flax (Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz) genotypes (Vinimik 17, PI 304269, CR 476/65, CR 1674/90, Ames26665, Ames26667, Ames26673, Ames26676, Ames26680, Ames26686 and Ames28372) in terms of oleic, linoleic, linolenic, steraic, eicosenoic and erucic acids in 2010 and 2011. Results showed that having highest linolenic acid content, Ames28372 could be suggested to be used as oil crops for oil industry or as medicine plant / as biodiesel fuels. Though the content of erucic acid in camelina genotypes used in this study was too beyond the permitted value of 1 %, they could be safely used with erucic acid level decreased under codex limit by breeding programs.
