Known for its bright blue flowers, we think that in addition to its significant agricultural importance that flax is also one of the most attractive crops grown in Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan is one of the major producers of oilseed flax in the world and, as most of it is exported, it provides an important boost to the Province's economy. In our web pages you will be able to read about flax, learn about the flax breeding program at the Crop Development Center, contact personnel in the Flax Program and find links to other flax-related web pages.
