CDC Dorado Yellow Flax
Bred at the Crop Development Centre at the University of Saskatchewan, CDC Dorado is a high-yielding yellow flax with better oil content, linolenic acid content, and a good disease package among other positive characteristics. CDC Dorado is suited to all flax-growing areas of western Canada. In regional trials, yields were significantly higher than the checks in the longer growing seasons of the black and dark grey soil zones and equal to check yields elsewhere.
