Duguid, S. D., Rashid, K. Y. and Kenaschuk, E. O. 2014. Prairie Grande flax. Can. J. Plant Sci. 94: 791-795. Prairie Grande, a medium-early maturing oilseed flax (Linum usitatissimum L.), was released in 2007 by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Morden Research Station, Morden, Manitoba. Developed from a cross of AC Watson/CI3395 made in 1996, Prairie Grande was evaluated in the Flax Cooperative Trials in (2003-2005) before being registered in 2007. Prairie Grande's desirable combination of significantly higher yield with significantly earlier maturity (3.1 d earlier than Flanders), along with seed quality similar to Flanders, but with higher protein content in the meal and a good disease resistance package, should make it a useful cultivar for producers in the northern prairies of Canada and the flax industry.
