Flax Seed Treatment Evaluation
Collaborating LocationsManitoba Crop Alliance
This project will evaluate commercially available seed treatments and respective label rates in brown and yellow flax for Manitoba farmers. Two flax varieties (one yellow, one brown) will be evaluated in this study. The available seed treatments for flax in Manitoba are Insure Pulse (300 mL to 600 mL/100 kg of seed) and Vitaflo Brands (525 mL/100 kg of seed). Various trial data will be collects from plots with either seed treatment on both yellow and brown flax. Data will be evaluated to determine efficacy of seed treatment and the relationship it has with germination and emergence.
- To evaluate the efficacy of Manitoba-registered flax seed treatments against soil-borne diseases in two flax types (yellow and brown)
- To evaluate the relationship between the seed treatment and germination, emergence and yield in brown and yellow flax types
