Principal Investigators: DR. CHRISTINA EYNCK & DR. BIFANG CHENG Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) Saskatoon Research & Development Centre
Carinata (Brassica carinata) has been developed at AAFC-SRDC as a dedicated industrial oilseed crop for applications such as biofuels, bio-lubricants, and biopolymers. The seed meal, a by-product of the crushing process, is a high-value feed ingredient for livestock. The economic opportunity for carinata as feedstock for the emerging bioeconomy is significant as the global markets are large.
