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.
