UC 113 is a variety of spring oat selected at the University of California, Davis. Designed with a shorter height and enhanced straw strength, this oat retains excellent lodging resistance and is well suited for highly productive environments. UC 113 can be utilized for either grain or forage production, with fantastic yield in either case. Compared with Montezuma, UC 113 has a 45% higher yield average, along with higher crude protein levels and lower acid/neutral detergent fiber. It is also resistant to shatter and stem rust: another several qualities that make up this stellar variety.
A spring oat variety selected by UC Davis. Very tall with excellent straw strength; lodging only occurs in highly productive environments. Perfect for fall planting along the valley and coast of Central California with either grain or forage production. Excellent shatter resistance helps contribute to an average grain yield 127% that of Montezuma's average, not to mention a higher crude protein percentage as well. Moderately resistant to BYD, stem rust, crown rust, and powdery mildew.
UC 148 is a spring oat released by the University of California, Davis in 2007. A tall, moderately late maturing oat with good straw strength and only occasional lodging. Test weight is very good (38 lb/bu), and kernel weight is equally excellent (36 mg/kernel). Grain yield is 14% higher than that of Montezuma on average with a higher crude protein percentage. This variety is also resistant to crown rust. An excellent choice for a reliable crop.
Swan is a tall, medium early maturing, spring oat. It is quite leafy, with medium diameter stems, making the plant resistant to lodging. There is vigorous early season growth, with the finishing yield providing spectacular numbers. Bushel weights average 38.8 lb/bu, while kernel weights average 38 mg. This dual purpose oat therefore supplies a high grain yield in addition to a high forage yield. A dependable choice for anyone interested in oats.
Montezuma is an early maturing, high tillering spring oat. It has the earliest maturity of all California oats and produces fantastic yield. It has a desirable bushel weight averaging 36.8 lb/bu and plump kernels averaging 35.6 mg. The fine stems and leafy appearance help produce good quality forage; it is especially popular for use with horses. Montezuma also retains a good resistance to shattering.
