How neat is this??We are excited to work with North Dakota State University on another research project this year!

Our farm will be hosting a trial plot of perennial flax.

Perennial crops are winter-hardy crops that are typically sown in the fall, and regrow from a crown in the spring. Perennial crops can be beneficial to farmers for a number of reasons, many of which center around sustainability. Perennial crops can: improve soil water infiltration, reduce off-season soil erosion and run-off, diversify harvest windows, and maximize use of the full growing season.

The research plot will work toward developing agronomical practice recommendations for perennial flax (determine best sowing date, planting density, weed control methods, etc.), enhancing perennial flax breeding programs, and increasing the awareness of perennial crop varieties among regional farmers.

It is always an honor to work with universities toward the establishment of new and improved crop varieties, and we hope that this research will provide beneficial results for breeders, farmers, and consumers!
