Forage Oats

Spring and Winter Varieties Available

More widely available than Rye and cheaper, but not as hardy. Winter and spring types establish reliably and suppress weeds well. Spring Oats are more vigorous, but not hardy. Even Winter Oats can leave top growth in very hard winters, but it regrows in early spring. Often combined with Hairy Vetch.
