Research Topic: Oat Breeding

  • Project Status: Completed
  • Abstract/Summary: The objective of this project was to demonstrate how seedling vigour of oats can be improved by screening out smaller less vigorous seed. Increasing the average seed size of a seed lot should result in greater emergence, improved stand establishment, greater competitiveness against wild oats, earlier maturity and greater yield.

Research Topic: Oat Breeding

  • Project Status: In Progress
  • Principal Investigators: Prairie Oat Breeding Consortium (POBC)
  • Project Dates: April 2018 –March 2023
  • Abstract/Summary: The objective of the Prairie Oat Breeding Consortium (POBC) is to develop new oat cultivars suited to production in western Canada and to end use markets identified by the Prairie Oat Growers Association (POGA) and the milling industry. The cultivars developed will have end-use quality identified as important by the industry and will carry genetic resistance to major diseases, pests, and adverse environmental conditions prevalent in the planned production areas.
    The development of cultivars that are genetically resistant to pests and adaptable to various climatic conditionswill help producers be more resilient by reducing the cost of growing oats, the fossil fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions, and the amount of pesticides used in oat production.
    Risks to oat producers and the oat processing industry will be reduced by oat cultivars that perform better agronomically, are resistant to pests and produce reliably healthy products for human and animal consumption, in Canada and around the world.
    Project partners includeAgriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Austgrains, FP Genetics, General Mills, Grain Millers Canada, Emerson Milling, SeCan, Richardson International, and POGA.
