Bristle Oat - Green manure


expected: may 2020
Japanse Haver - Groenbemester – Avena strigosa

Lopsided Oat is an excellent green manure that is exceptionally well suited for later sowing as well. Lopsided oat arises very quickly and produces a lot of plant material above ground and is therefore very useful against weeds. The plants root very deep, are little structure sensitive, and contribute to a well-balanced soil fauna. The crop can resist temperatures a little below 0oC, but will freeze to death in harsh frost. Lopsided oat is used for combatting eels, as an alternative for Tagetes.
