ABSTRACT
Yield and chemical composition of two linseed cultivars of various colour was checked in the years 1998-2000. Dry matter, organic matter, total protein, ether extract, crude fibre, N-free extractives, acid detergent fiber (ADF), neutral detergent fiber (NDF), gross energy, sum of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids were taken into account. Brown linseed - Opal and yellow - Hungarian Gold did not reveal significant differences in chemical composition and gave satisfactory and stable yield. On the basis of the results it was concluded that linseed can be regarded as reliable and efficient source of α-linoleic acid for human and animal nutrition.
