Everleaf Oats

Everleaf Oats - Organic

Avena sativa Annual grass. A late-heading vigorous oat that has gained a cult following among dairy farmers and veggie growers alike. More heat-tolerant than common oats. Seed in springtime at 100#/acre, 3#/1000 sq ft.

As cover crop: Exceptionally vigorous seedlings and lush leafy growth make this oat variety especially competitive with weeds. Will build more biomass than common oats.

As forage: If cut in the early boot stage (when the flower head is only just detectable inside the leaf sheath) the hay can achieve protein levels of 19% and the plant will regrow for a second crop. Everleaf oats harvested at the soft-dough stage (when the kernel is developing but still soft enough to cut with a fingernail) achieved dry-matter yields of nearly 4 tons per acre in a 2010 University of Vermont trial. If allowed to reach full height, the plants will top 5' and yield a large crop of excellent bedding straw. Also suitable for grazing.
