Fort St. John site of flax research project

Fort St. John will be part of a ten-year research project that will attempt to develop better flax varieties for northern growing areas.

The Canadian Press reports around 12 per cent of Saskatchewan flax is grown in the northern grain belt.

The project hopes to improve cool soil germination and seedling frost tolerance. Farmers in northern areas are also looking for a variety that requires fewer growing degree days to mature.

It is being funding by Viterra, SaskFlax, the Saskatchewan Agriculture Development Fund, Alberta Research Council and the B-C Grain Producers Association.
