Flax is a staple in Saskatchewan agriculture, and the seed is found in delicious breads, granolas and smoothies. While it’s a wonderful food, the fibre it leaves behind in fields is not so wonderful. “Flax has a very durable fibre that can be cultivated but takes a long, long time to decompose,” says Jamie Hilts, Dean, School of Mining, Energy and Manufacturing at Saskatchewan Polytechnic. “Often, farmers rely on burning the fibre in their fields to get rid of it. They pay for a fire service, the smoke is not good for the environment, and it smells bad for surrounding communities.
