This experiment was conducted to test a range of sowing dates, between 01.03.99 and 07.06.99 and in this way covering a wide range of environmental situations. Seed yield, yield component and different development periods of flax were measured and compared. It was found that seed yield generally decreased by delayed sowing. The effects were significant for number of seeds per m2, number of capsules per plant, number of seeds per plant and number of seeds per capsule but not for number of capsules per m2
