Flax Variety Testing

Like the RVT cereals and pulses, MARA is evaluating the field performance of 4 flax cultivars in northern Alberta. Flax is being tested under both conventional and organic systems due to the regional demand of organically grown flax. Variables to be analyzed include stand percentage, height, days to flowering, days to maturity, disease rating, and yield. The data is used in the publication of the Alberta Seed Guide.
