GEORGETA POP, ERSILIA ALEXA, TIBERIU IANCU, FLORIN IMBREA, ADRIAN LAZA STUDY ON THE INFLUENCE OF SOIL AND FERTILIZATION ON AMINO ACID CONTENT IN OIL LINEN Research results on oil linen (Linum usitatissimum L.) point out the importance of this crop not only as an oil plant but also as a plant with multiple opportunities of diversification. The experiment was set at the Didactic and Research Station within the Banat’s University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine King Michael I of Romania from Timisoara. The goal of this paper is to analyse the impact of soil and fertilization on amino acid content level and structure in oil flax vegetal protein. Cultivar plays a determining role on the content of amino acids in oil flax vegetal protein: the sum of amino acids ranges between 16.21 and 22.44 g/100 g of grits. Fertilization changes the amount of amino acids: the sum of amino acids ranges between 17.08 and 23.32 g/100 g of grits. Fertilization also determines changes of the level and structure of amino acids in oil flax protein.
