Results why man I’ve gotten lots of results; I know of at least a thousand things that won’t work.

  • Impact of seeding rate and cultivar
  • How does nitrogen and fungicide application affect seed and fiber
  • What is the best way to treat flax before harvest to ensure high seed and fiber yield with rapid retting
  • What is the impact of field location and cutting height of fibre content and yield
summary of seeding rate and date
Summary of seeding rate and date
  • Cultivars did not interact with seeding rate or date
  • Plant population increased nearly linearly with seeding rate
  • Early seeding > seed yield linear decrease over seeding rates due in part to lodging and possibly narrow rows
  • Fiber yield increased with seeding rate
nitrogen and fungicide impacts

Nitrogen and Fungicide impacts

Is there value to applying Headline at various Nitrogen rates?

nitrogen fungicide
Nitrogen *fungicide
  • Fungicide application increased yields if disease pressure was higher
  • At some sites this impact increased with nitrogen application rate
  • Seed and fiber yields increased with N over the entire range
  • Stem size greater with more nitrogen to be expected
  • Decision as always is based on risk management and in most season in the major flax growing areas a question mark
harvest system impacts

Harvest system impacts

Reglone, glyphosate and swathing

Samples left in field for 0 to 7 weeks in fall

slope position and cutting height

Slope position and cutting height

In many areas there is a fair bit of topography

What is the variation with the field in fiber yield and can we predict this
