Title: Flax Variety Response to Planting Date
Author: Lukach, J.R.; Hoag, B.K.; Thompson, C.R.
Description: Flax is a major agricultural crop grown in North Dakota and is used in rotation in small grains in part to help break up small grain disease cycles. However, farmers often have weed competition problems in their flax crops. Given this, flax yields have been very low in the state. The planting date of the flax crops is one thing that farmers can control, which determines when plant flowering and seed set occur. Temperatures that are higher combined with lower precipitation can cause lower flax yields. Flax variety yield, test weight, growing degree days to flower and plant height were evaluated at six different planting periods from 1977-85. In a nine year study, the planting date of flax indicates that delayed flax planting will yield potential.
