The article presents the main trends of weed floristic composition change in flax crops, associated with the development of agrotechnical methods of this crop cultivation. It is shown that the development of scientific and technical support for the flax industry contributes to a more complete satisfaction of culture with all factors of life and enhances its competitive ability. So, the phytocenotic role of many segetal weeds present in crops decreases, up to their complete loss from agrophytocenosis. They considered the actual weediness of flax crops and the biological effectiveness of various preparations and their compositions to prevent weeds.
