Organic Oat Variety Evaluation Interim Report

Researchers at the Harrington Research Farm established an organic oat cultivar trial in the organic block. The trial consisted of eight oat cultivars including the common oat (believed to be Marion) and three rates of nitrogen in the form of pelletized chicken manure (8, 16 and 36 kg N/ha).  Determined were yield, hectare litre weight, and 1000 kernel weight.
