LINGLE, Wyo. — Perseverance has opened the door for a new three-year, multi-million dollar camelina research project at the University of Wyoming James C. Hageman Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center near Lingle. The proposal, co-written by Dr. Augustine Obour, crops research scientist at SAREC, and researchers at Montana State University and Kansas State University, should produce information that will enhance the future of camelina, an oilseed that has gained the attention of the airline industry as a future jet fuel.

“The proposal is about enhancing the economy of growing camelina,” Obour said during an interview at SAREC. “We know there is interest by the airline industry for jet fuel, and this study will look at the agrinomics of camelina.”
