Hulless Oats - OrganicAvena nuda Annual grass. Most oats have a clinging hull that requires industrial-grade milling to render them suitable for human consumption. Hulless oats are not, in fact, hulless, but as in wheat the hull sheds easily during the normal threshing process. Medium straw. Resistant to crown rust.
Plant in early spring at 100#/acre, 3#/1000 sq ft.
As food grain: For cooking, soak in water: what little hull remains will float and may be swept away.
As feed grain: The lack of hull lowers the crude fiber levels and improves digestiblity compared to common oats. Higher in protein than other small grains, but not higher in lysine.
