Abstract Linseed (Linum usitatissimum L) has been under cultivation since the dawn of civilization. It is an important oilseed crop. Every part of the linseed plant has specific economic importance. It’s crushed seed/flour is used for value addition and for making various food preparations. Linseed oil has various industrial and medicinal uses. The stalk or straw is used for making flex fibre and papers. Indeed there is no herb so useful to mankind as is this crop for its interesting… Expand
Diversity Analysis in Linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.)
The studies on variation in the germplasm are very useful for developing high yielding, disease and insectpest resistant cultivars. Expand
Assessment of Genetic Diversity in Linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.)
Linseed has numerous medicinal properties for which it is used in local medicines as demulcent, emollient and laxative and is taken orally in bronchial infection and diarrheal. Expand
Combining Ability Analysis for Oil and Seed Parameters in Linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.).
Linseed is one of the oilseed crop, which can be a future edible oil seed crop having physical, chemical, and processing properties similar to other oilseed, seeing the growing population rate and their ever increasing demand of oil. Expand
The change in variety composition in favour of oil-varieties of flax brought about even a change in harvest practices in favour of combine harvesters. Postharvest residues, mainly in the form ofExpand
Effect of auxin and gibberellic acid on growth and yield components of linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.)
It was concluded that the plant growth regulators can be successfully employed to enhance the yield in this economically important oil seed crop. Expand

Half Diallel Analysis for Estimation of Heterosis for Phonological Traits in Linseed (Linum usitatissimum L)
Linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) is annual self-pollinated diploid (2x=2n=30) oilseed crop belonging to Linaceae family and it as an earliest domesticated and economically important industrial nonExpand
Biplot Approach for Identification of Heterotic Crosses in Linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.)
Seven parents' half diallel data was subjected to biplot analysis to identify the heterotic crosses, genetically similar parents, and to study their interrelationship. Expand
Enhancement of bioavailable iron and calcium contents in fermented linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) beverages
Linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) is considered as a nutritious food because of exceptionally high alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) content, dietary fiber, quality protein and phytoestrogens. It is rich inExpand
Diallel Analysis for Estimation of Combining Ability for Seed Yield and It’s Component Traits in Linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.)
The present investigation consisted of eight parents of linseed which were crossed as per diallel analysis in Rabi 2010-11 to generate 28 crosses and the parents FRW-6 and POLF-19 were good general combiner for seedyield and most of the traits. Expand
