Field pennycress (Thlaspi arvense) is a winter annual oilseed showing great promise as a new crop for growers to adopt that will keep the soil in continuous living cover, protect water quality and increase profitability.

The seeds of field pennycress are oil-rich (>30%) and contain specific fatty acids that can be used for select purposes such as healthy edible oils, biodegradable plastic packaging materials, lubricants, and biofuels. The seed meal that remains after oil processing also has important uses as highly nutritional food and animal feed.
