This article presents the results of the introduction of non-traditional oilseed crops (camelina and safflower) in arid conditions. Their economic value is in the heat and drought tolerance, the ability to produce stable yields in the driest years. The fat content of seed of these crops reaches up to 60 %. The unique fatty acid composition allows the use of oil in many sectors of the economy. Cultivation of camelina and safflower increases the biodiversity of agricultural landscapes with oilseeds, reduces the agro-ecological tension of arid territories.
