Summary

What should you bear in mind to successfully cultivate linseed in terms of location, varieties, tillage, fertilisation, crop rotation, maintenance and harvesting?
In particular, its low nutrient demand and the high market demand make linseed an interesting specialty crop for organic farms.
Thomas Frei sums up his experience of having cultivated organic linseed for ten years. Hansueli Brasselsberg and Hans-Georg Kessler (Biofarm) and linseed producer Mischa Scherer provide further statements.
The film was realised in Brütten, Canton of Zurich, at the Swiss Bioackerbautag. The Bioackerbautag is an annual event in Switzerland including field visits, variety trials, information on cultivation and machinery demonstrations.

Insbesondere die geringen Ansprüche an die Nährstoffversorgung und die gute Nachfrage am Markt machen den Lein zu einer interessanten Nischenkultur für Biobetriebe. Thomas Frei fasst seine Erfahrungen aus zehn Jahren biologischem Leinanbau zusammen. Mit weiteren Statements von Hansueli Brassel und Hans-Georg Kessler, Biofarm sowie Leinproduzent Mischa Scherer.
Der Film wurde am Schweizer Bioackerbautag in Brütten ZH produziert.
