The problems with weed control in-gamecover crops usually arise because the combination of several different crop species in the mixture, it can make it difficult to find herbicides that are safe to all the components. Weed pressure is also increased when cover crops are sown on the same piece of land for a number of years.

Linseed is a fast establishing crop that provides exceptionally high yields. It is an early maturing variety that will tolerate a wide range of soil types. Linseed creates a broken canopy which is very attractive to partridges and its autumn seed shed produces a palatable feed. Including a Linseed crop in an arable rotation provides a number of benefits for farmers. First the late drilling time of mid-March to mid-April allows a large window to fit in autumn and spring cultivations and herbicide applications. A Linseed break crop has acquired a reputation for contributing to excellent yields in following wheat crops, a benefit attributed to an improvement in soil structure resulting from its vigorous rooting habit.
