Navy oilseed project
Dr. Katherine (Kate) Behrman is working on gathering field data and simulating oilseed crops for biofuel production. In Temple, Texas she is growing both winter and spring varieties of oilseeds including canola, rapeseed, camelina, and mustard. She is part of a Navy project that has variety trials growing in the Carolinas, Dakotas, and into the Northwestern part of the country.
