Flax potential exists in SD

BROOKINGS, S.D. — Today, only about 7,000 acres in South Dakota are planted with flax seed. This is a large change from the mid-1980s when South Dakota produced close to 100,000 acres of flax and was one of the largest producers in the U.S., according to Ruth Beck, South Dakota State University Extension agronomy field specialist.
