Fiber Flax Farming Practices in the Southeastern United States
- Flax fiber and oilseed use is increasing in textiles, composites, paper/pulp and industrial/nutritional oil sectors in the U.S. As a winter crop, flax fits well into double-cropping systems in the southeastern U.S. Flax can be harvested as an early crop for fiber, with attached immature seeds, or harvested as a late, mature crop, for both seed and fiber production. Flax can be grown and harvested for fiber using equipment that is readily available and well understood by U.S. farmers.
