Sample text

Flax has a tap root. The leading shoot is erect and lateral branching at the stem base occurs. If the leading shoot of the young plant is injured, the plant will develop several secondary basal prostrate-ascending sprouts. The number of basal shoots also increases with high levels of soil fertility (Dillman and Brinsmade, 1938). Lateral branching is suppressed by dense planting, which is practiced in fiber flax cultivation. 2). Plant height ranges from 20 to 150 cm (Hegi, 1925). Large-seeded flax is much shorter than typical fiber flax.

As the plant was introduced to new areas, it underwent selection for adaptation to very different environments, resulting in a wide range of diversity. Simultaneously, selection for the use of the seed oil or the fiber resulted in very distinct plant types. Selection for use of the seed focused on the development of the generative parts of the plant, while selection for use of the fiber resulted in tall, rarely branched plants. 4). The English name, “flax,” refers to the species in general. However, in Europe “flax” is usually associated with the fiber plant, while the name “linseed” is applied to oilseed flax.
