Organic Oats Variety Evaluation
Jennifer Mitchell-Fetch, AAFC Brandon
To evaluate oat varieties for organic production.
Research suggests that selection of cereal crops specific to organic agriculture should be conducted on organically managed land [1,2]. Conventional management systems may mask or confound certain plant characteristics, resulting in selection of sub-optimal cultivars for organic production systems. Organic management conditions were used for the trial at PCDF, although the site is not certified organic.
