Abstract

Duguid, S. D. and Rashid, K. Y. 2013. Prairie Sapphire flax. Can. J. Plant Sci. 93: 1271-1275. Prairie Sapphire, a medium-early maturing oilseed flax (Linum usitatissimum L.), was released in 2009 by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Morden Research Station, Morden, Manitoba. Developed from the cross Macbeth/FP2030 made in 1998, Prairie Sapphire was evaluated in the Flax Cooperative Trials (2005-2007) before being registered in 2009. Prairie Sapphire's desirable combination of agronomic traits with its significantly improved oil and meal protein content should make it a useful cultivar for producers and the flax industry.
