French term or phrase: La création variétale
This appears as a paragraph header in a text about a flax production/techniques.

Also, from the same text, any suggestions for:
"Fibres adaptées à la filature lin au sec ou demi-mouillé ou la filature mélange". I know what it wants to say, but can't find a concise English equivalent.

I'd be so grateful for any suggestions to the above.
Thanks, Sarah

English translation:Creation of variety
Explanation:
Sarah, it's hard to get this quite right without seeing the whole of your text, but anyway "variety" is the key word, assuming they are talking about growing/developing the right variety of flax for a specific purpose. Take a look at the EU's "Community Plant Variety Office" site (URL below), which may give you some useful links..
