One of the major problems in dry countries such as Iran is water and soil salinity. Deficiencies in water resources have led to the use of saline water for irrigation in agriculture. In order to study the effects of salinity stress on seed, oil and protein yield of Camelina, a randomized complete block design factorial experiment with three replications was designed in a research greenhouse. The factors included 4 lines Camelina (80, 115, 130 and 131) and 5 saline levels (0.6, 3, 6, 9 and 12 dS/m) and the control sample was rainfed condition. The results showed that by increasing salinity levels, grain yield and its components decreased significantly but there were no considerable differences between Camilina lines at all. In addition, the results showed that the seed, oil and protein yields in rainfed conditions is more than that of irrigation with 12 dS/m salinity, and it suggests that the cultivation of this plant in the rainfed conditions is not economically efficient for more than 9 dS/m salinity condition.
