ABSTRACT
Oil flax has a special importance for the conditions in our country. This paper was inspired by the fact that over the past years, technical plants have been reconsidered in Romania, given the international crisis of resources and energy. Dobrogea is a favorable zone for oil flax and mixed flax. In the mixed flax, the technical length is between 30-50 cm, being used both for oil and the extraction of fibers. The major objectives of this paper are: aspects regarding the cultivation of oil flax and mixed flax in connection to distribution, biological particularities and requirements for climate and soil, with particular reference to the actual conditions of Dobrogea, as well as the cultivation technology of this plant which can be grown in drier regions as well. Given the climatic changes at international level, but also in our country, the structure of crops must be reconsidered, especially in the areas heavily affected by drought. Oil flax loves the heat and can be considered for cultivation on large surfaces in Dobrogea, on the condition that the cultivation technology should respect the climatic requirements.
