Great Plains – The Camelina Company, the world’s leader in camelina production and development, is searching for a site for an oilseed crushing facility in the state of Montana.
With the assistance of a $50,000 grant awarded by the Montana Agriculture Development Council from the Montana Growth Through Agriculture Program, a feasibility study is currently being conducted and a site will be named in the near future.
A low cost feedstock, camelina is well suited for the more arid regions of the Northern Great Plains, requiring low inputs of water, fertilizer and pesticide. It can be planted behind wheat and on marginal lands. It is sustainable, does not compete with other crops and is successful as a rotational crop.
