Most oats are fed to
livestock or made into cereal because the grains are hard to
hull without damage. This variety sheds its hull much more
easily so it can be used for food without expensive threshing
equipment. Softer than other grains, so use care in handling.
Medium height variety for early spring planting and late
summer harvest. Umbrella-like grain heads and lots of straw
for compost (carbon source). Plants shed water easily making them less susceptible to disease.
