Promoting Canadian Oats

Select fields with good drainage, sandy loam to heavy clay soil textures. Avoid fields that had cereal crops in the previous year to reduce disease pressure and optimize yields.  As well, volunteer cereal grain in an oat sample may cause downgrading.

Avoid fields with a history of heavy wild oat pressure, and also avoid fields with a history of herbicide applications that may affect the growth of oats (see chart).
