Same thing here. Had flax in 2004 when it froze. Not much was left besides a low yielding crappy looking light sample.

Hello Dschill
Don't know how much, but I do know that the -1° C we had the other morning wasn't enough to kill my fairly green flax, & fairly green barley, & fairly green, yet undent silage corn.

K, so somewhat related in it's subjectivity, i have a question. I haven't ever grown much flax. Would it be more frost tolerant than canola later in the season? And has anyone broadcast it before and worked it in with a harrow or vertical tillage unit?

I would say very similar to canola, better frost tolerance in my experience. Also should expect similar results as canola with broadcasting, it seems to germinate anywhere it lies. I'm guessing a vertical tillage unit would do a good job.
