Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Brassica carinata is a non-food oilseed crop recently introduced to the Southeastern United States and is being developed for aviation biofuel due to its high seed oil and fatty acid profile. Since carinata is a new crop in the southeastern USA, there is a paucity of information available on the rotational fit of carinata into current crop rotations of the region. To address this, a study was conducted to evaluate the effects of previous summer crops (Peanut - Arachis hypogaea, Cotton - Gossypium hirsutum L., fallow) on carinata production, as well as the effects of carinata production on subsequent summer crops (peanut, cotton, soybean – Glycine max, and sorghum - Sorghum bicolor). A randomized complete block design with a split-split plot restriction on randomization with seven replications (3 irrigated; 4 non-irrigated) was implemented in Jay, Florida. Preliminary results from this trial will be presented.
