Camelina sativa is considered to be a second generation crop used for advanced biofuel production. In Romania research is being done regarding the agronomic factors which influence camelina yield potential. The objective of this study was to identify the technological elements that are most suitable for camelina cultivation. Therefore, different concentrations of nitrogen and phosphorus based fertilizers, as well as various row distances and seeding rates were studied. The experiments were conducted at Moara Domneasca (Ilfov county) in 2013. The experiments were placed in subdivided plots, in three replicates. The results showed that the highest yield potential was obtained when N60 P50 fertilization scheme was applied. Consequently, the application of large amounts of fertilizers is not necessary. The row distance of 12.5 cm prevented weed infestation and the crop developed well. The data obtained can be useful for more extensive studies regarding the agro-technical aspects of camelina crop.
