Spring Oats

Oats are an annual cereal grain that can be used as a nurse crop to establish alfalfa, chopped for livestock feed, or raised for grain. Spring oats are planted very early in the spring, are tolerant to cold, fast establishing, and mature in the middle of the summer. We are a dedicated supporter of oat breeding at the University level and carry a diverse selection of oat varieties to suit any purpose.

Planting: Oats should be drilled 1-2 in. deep into a firm seedbed in early spring.

Planting Rate (straight for grain/forage): 80-110 lbs. (3 bu/A).

Planting Rate (with alfalfa): 40-50 lbs (1½ – 2 bu/A).
