Flax

Field of flax.

Flax is an annual oilseed grown for raw seeds and oil as end use products. Flax acreage is limited in Washington state. Dryland flax seed yields in the Pacific Northwest can range from 2000 to 3000 lbs of seed per acre. Flax can offer rotational diversity and benefits to the existing grain-legume crop rotations, and has been used as a companion crop with chickpeas in Canada and the Northwest.
