- A three-year field experiment was conducted to compare the chemical composition of the seeds of two linseed-pea mixtures, that is the cv. ‘Flanders’ with the cv. ‘Ramrod’ and cv. ‘Barbara’ with cv. ‘Phönix’. The results indicate that the chemical composition of the seeds of the linseed cultivars was not significantly affected by the sowing method, indicating that the species traits of linseed are constant. The mixed sowing increased the content of threonine and proline in the protein of the Flanders cultivar seeds and slightly increased the protein content of the seeds of both linseed cultivars in the mixtures with pea.
