This coming Tuesday, May 15th, Naturally Advanced will be hosting CRAiLAR’s Farm Day. Held at the Pee Dee Research Center, our fiber flax cropping demo will feature demonstrations including planting, seeding, mowing, raking/tedding and baling.
Growers will be learning more about the production of Fiber Flax. The Naturally Advanced Technologies management team will be there to tell the CRAiLAR story, answer questions, to discuss the unique double cropping opportunity and best practices.
Grow with us!
As mentioned Wednesday this week, we would like to keep you updated on how things are going with the flax harvest this spring. At the risk of sounding a bit smug, we can confidently say that our efforts are bearing fruit, seed and straw in our case.
We have been working on growth trials, trying various strains of flax from around the world, and testing the fields for a few seasons, and we are getting very close to harvest in South Carolina. Winter growing is a bit of a challenge but flax is proving itself to be a very robust and hardy plant.
Speak to you soon!
