2149 solin (Linum usitatissimum L.) was developed by Agricore United and combines very high oil content with high yield. In all soil zones of western Canada, the yield of 2149 was similar to the check cultivar, 1084. The 1000 seed weight, oil content and meal protein content of 2149 are significantly higher than 1084. 2149 has higher levels of linoleic fatty acid and lower levels of saturated fatty acids. It is immune to North American races of rust [Melampsora lini (Ehrenb.) Desmaz.], is moderately resistant to Fusarium wilt [Fusarium oxysporum Schlecht. F. sp. Lini (Bolley) snyder & Hansen] and is moderately resistant to powdery mildew (Oidium lini Skoric). 2149 is a yellow seedcoat, solin cultivar. Author's Abstract.
