Effect of Temperatures During Plant Development on the Fatty Acid Composition of Linseed Oil1

Synopsis

Synopsis

Differential temperatures (constant 50°, 60°, 70°, and 80° F.) were applied before and after initiation of floral primordia in two varieties of seed flax. Pre-flower treatments caused significant differences in vegetative development but did not affect fatty acid composition of the seed oil of either variety. Post-flower-temperature affected fatty acid composition of the oil drastically. Linolenic acid decreased and oleic acid increased as post-flowering temperatures increased from 50°to 80° F. Linoleic acid was not affected significantly.
