Field trial of gene-edited Camelina.

(A) Aerial view of the trial setting on 12 July 2018, 5 weeks after sowing with two blocks per line (GE lines boxed in red – from left to right, plots are Control Celine, A7 and F4-24). Field irrigation was provided due to the unusually hot and dry UK summer. (B) Gene-edited lines A7 and F4-24 with control Céline on 13 August 2018, 9 weeks after sowing (A7 dwarf phenotype in inset).
