Comparison of oat varieties locations
To compare the grain yield performance of new oat varieties and lines against the current industry standards
Key messages
The grain variety Echidna and numbered varieties WAOAT2354 and WAOAT2332 were the highest grain yielding oat varieties, averaging 3.53 t/ha. The average grain yield for hay varieties (2.27 t/ha) was significantly lower compared with the average yields for grain varieties (3.13 t/ha)
