    Black Oat (Avena strigosa) is having a resurgence as a biomass producer for cover crops and as a forage for livestock.  Black oats tiller out more and have a very fibrous root mass similar to cereal rye.

    SoilSaver is a variety that we carry at the current time.  It is a joint release between Auburn University and IAPAR (Institute of Agronomy of Parana) in Brazil.  We have been working with this variety to figure out what it's best fit might be, and when and where we can utilize it.  It does not have enough cold tolerance to over winter for us, so we are looking at it as a spring oat for a large area.  It can be planted in the spring, and also can be planted in late summer or early fall and harvested for forage or let it freeze out then. 

    We still have been looking for more cold tolerant varieties, and we are searching for one that would overwinter for us in the plains.
