It was established that desiccation or cutting of oil flax plants and laying them in swaths, in spite of their maturation conditions increases moisture losses. It reduces conventional losses of seeds and straw and has a positive impact on the infestation, physical and mechanical parameters of straw for industrial use. The fastest dehydration, 4.9 – 5.52 % per day throughout the first four days after treatment, is provided by the desiccation with the preparations Basta 2 liters per hectare and Reglon Super 3 liters per hectare.

Key words: oil-bearing flax, harvesting technology, desiccation, seeds, straw, dehydration.
