Linseed is recognized as one of the important industrial crops. However, production of linseed is not keeping pace with increasing demand of its products. Under these circumstances, the best strategy for dual purpose linseed would be to increase the height of the plant and to improve seed weight, a task which may prove simpler than achieving the synchronization of seed and fibre maturity. To achieve this, the present author proposed to apply nutrients in association with gibberellic acid to linseed to increase stem height for better harvesting of solar energy for maximum utilization of its potential for seed, oil and fibre production. The present work provides precious information regarding the use of linseed as a dual purpose crop for obtaining seeds as well as fibres from the same crop.
