Methods of primary seed production of fiber flax









Linked profile in other language
Margarita Maslinskaia
The Flax Institute offers consumers seed production methods and technologies for obtaining original fiber flax seeds under a commercial agreement with technical assistance and is looking for partners to conclude a technical cooperation agreement.
Purpose: Obtaining original fiber flax seeds.

Brief description of the development.
New, more productive methods and technologies for selecting fiber flax mother plants have been developed to speed up the seed-growing process:
- selection of mother plants according to the flowering interval of flax;
- selection for bast content in flax stems.
Advantages and Innovations
The improved scheme for primary seed production of fiber flax makes it possible to shorten the seed production process by 2 years and ensure faster introduction of new varieties of fiber flax into production.

The use of new technology and a scheme for primary seed production of fiber flax makes it possible to carry out variety change and variety renewal in 9 years, to simplify the creation of batches of original seeds in the primary links of seed production. When using a new scheme for fiber flax seed production on a cultivation area of 1000 hectares, cost savings due to the introduction of new varieties into production will amount to 211.4 million rubles, the profit from reducing costs in primary seed production received over 2 years is 43.1 million rubles.
