Avena strigosa

4100

Bristle oats emerge fast. Its large leaf mass makes it an ideal crop for weed suppression. It is an excellent green manure that can cope with mild, but not severe frost.

Features

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.
