Agronomic studies of flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) in south-eastern Australia

Agronomic studies of flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) in south-eastern Australia

Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture 40(8): 1101-1112

This paper reports on field agronomy studies into flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) conducted in Tasmania, Australia from 1994 to 1997. These studies investigated the performance of selected cultivars, and responses to sowing date, plant density and irrigation. The work formed part of a feasibility study assessing the potential of fibre hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) and flax as sources of fibre for the Australian newsprint industry.
