China°s joining the WTO now requires the establishment of a more competitive market economy and a significant adjustment of its farm production structure. This is putting immense pressure on the Chinese for implementing quick developments to its fibre flax and linen fabric industry. Massive efforts have been initiated focusing on breeding and variety improvement and development. The China Science Committee has launched a program to identify germplasm resources and store them in the National Germplasm Storehouse. There are over 4,000 flax collections now in China, including fibre, oil and both oil & fibre, wild flax, sterile flax and plyembryonic seeds. The main breeding objectives for fibre flax are high yield, good quality, disease resistance and wide adaptability, expanding the long fibre content up to 19-20% with a total fibre content of 30%. The major breeding research efforts are located at the Flax Research Institute under the Academy of Agricultural Sciences

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
