Title: Plot 30: Proving Ground For Wilt Resistant Flax Varieties
Author: Thompson, T. E.; Zimmer, D. E.
Description: Flax wilt (Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lini) is potentially one of the most destructive diseases of flax. In the early 1900's, it threatened the continued production of seed flax as a crop in this country. Plot 30 was established in 1894 as a flax wilt research plot at Fargo, North Dakota, by Professor H.L. Bolley of the North Dakota Agricultural College. This plot has since proved to be invaluable in establishing the causal organism of flax wilt and in breeding wilt resistant flax varieties. This was simply a quick overview.
