Building a Resilient Global Bioeconomy Through a Regional Partnership.

Carinata (Ethiopian mustard), a nonfood oilseed brassica is a dedicated feedstock for renewable jet fuel, diesel and other bioproducts. In the southeastern United States carinata can be produced as a cool season crop covering millions of acres of winter fallow land. The meal from carinata seed can provide a high-protein feed source for livestock. These characteristics make carinata a promising cool season crop that provides agronomic, environmental and economic benefits to producers.
