dc.description.abstract Camelina (Camelina sativa L.) is native from Finland to Romania and east to the Ural Mountains. It was first cultivated in northern Europe during the Bronze Age. The seeds were crushed and boiled to release oil for food, medicinal use, and lamp oil. It is still a relatively common weed in much of Europe, known as false flax or gold-of-pleasure. Although it was widely grown in Europe and Russia until the 1940s, camelina was largely displaced by higher-yielding crops after World War II. Its decline in Europe was accelerated by farm subsidy programs that favored the major commodity grain and oilseed crops. en_US
