Goals

In this project we will find out if it is possible to increase the cultivation of oats to respond to this need in the perspective of changing climate. Also in the perspective of environment and diversity we will find out if it is possible to produce oats instead of feed barley especially in the areas where at present barley is grown as a monoculture.

Outputs

We will reveal the real performance differences and effects on breeding on the differences between barley and oats in varying growing conditions, based on extensive VCU trial and farmer field data
