This is a complete guide to the specifics of crambe production, from seedbed preparation to harvesting, storage and marketing. Crambe (Crambe abyssinica) is an oil crop from the mustard family. The seed contains 30 to 35 percent oil with 40 to 60 percent erucic acid in the oil. The erucic acid oil content of crambe is 8-9 percent more than that of rapeseed.
