A Winter Camelina Field Workshop was held on the 10th of March at the Agriculture Experimental Station Dłoń, located in Poland by our partner PULS. The main objective of the workshop was to present the winter camelina in field conditions, focusing on crop growth and productivity. The scientific staff of the Carina project led discussions on the most important issues related to agrotechnical treatments in camelina cultivation to local farmers. Talks on performed and future agrotechnical treatments were found to be very interesting for workshop participants.
One of the main outcomes of the workshop was to transfer practical knowledge to the farmers. This is important because it allows them to improve their yield and manage their crops more efficiently. Another outcome was that project staff gained knowledge about the most common difficulties faced by farmers in camelina cultivation. Technical limitations, especially in sowing and harvesting methods, were found to be the most challenging for them.
In light of this, the need for another field workshop was indicated by the meeting participants in Dłoń. The next workshop is scheduled to take place in July, and it will focus on harvesting methodology. The aim of the workshop is to further transfer practical knowledge to farmers, and to continue to learn from each other.
The Winter Camelina Field Workshop was a great success, as it brought together scientific staff and local farmers to discuss issues related to camelina cultivation. The event was held from 10 am to 2 pm, and included presentations and discussions on agrotechnical treatments. Overall, the workshop was a great opportunity for participants to learn from each other and to work towards improving camelina cultivation practices in Poland.
