Flax Variety Information

These reports  flax variety performance results for 2011 and  flax variety performance results for 2013 provide results from the various North Dakota State University Research Extension Centers. The relative performance of the varieties is presented in table format. Give special attention to yield results of those trials nearest to your production area when evaluating varieties in these trials. Also, attempt to view yield averages of several years rather than using only one year’s data as a determining factor. In addition, also consider other agronomic characteristics, such as maturity, lodging score and oil percentages, if available.

The agronomic data presented are from replicated research plots using experimental designs that  enable the use of statistical analysis. The LSD (Least Significant Difference) numbers beneath the columns in  tables are derived from the statistical analyses and only apply to the numbers in the column in which they appear. If the difference between two varieties exceeds the LSD value, it means that with 95 percent probability the higher-yielding variety has a significant yield advantage. If the difference between two varieties is less than the LSD value, then the variety yields are considered similar. NS is used to indicate no significant difference for that  trait among any of the varieties. The CV is a measure of variability in the trial. The CV stands for coefficient of variation and is expressed as a percentage. Large CVs mean a large amount of variation that could not be attributed to differences in the varieties. In the tables, the mean indicates the average of the observations in the column. Only compare values within the table and look for trends for the desired trait among different experimental sites and years.
Oil content and harvested seed yield were adjusted to 9 percent moisture.
