Avena Strigosa

SAIA oats are a tall black seeded grazing oat with a fine stem. It is fast to establish and will provide good quality early winter feed when planted in late March/early autumn.

SAIA can be utilised for grazing, silage, and hay. It will grow in a wide range of soil types and has a good tolerance of acid soils. SAIA rebounds quickly after grazing. Commonly used in cover crop situations, SAIA oats can help control root lesion nematode and stubby root nematodes which can cause dramatic damage in potato and vegetable crops. Highly tolerant to aluminium and manganese toxicity. SAIA has a much smaller seed size than traditional forage oats so a reduction in seeding rate is recommended. Can be spring or autumn planted, minimum rainfall 350 mm.
