Does well on any fairly fertile soil, 

and often used as a green manure, compost crop, or 

nurse crop for slower-growing plants. 

Oats grow best between 65 and 75 degrees F. They die if the temperature goes down to 10 F.

Oats are highest in protein, lowest in carbohydrates, of the cereal grains. Likes more water than other grains. 

Abundant straw makes a good compost crop, and excellent hay. Animals, including deer, love to graze this nutritious crop. 

Our hard-to-find varieties are easily threshed for the grain. 

Both the straw and the immature grains are used medicinally to help nerves, depression, and sleep problems.
