COSAQUE BLACK HULL OATS

#2273 | AVENA STRIGOSA

Summary

Cosaque is a black grained, winter oat variety from France that has shown excellent potential as a forage crop in Kentucky- based research trials conducted by Miles Farm Supply. It has demonstrated high forage yield potential and outstanding quality characteristics along with other positive agronomic traits.

Though winter oats generally mature after wheat, Cosaque is even later than the standard winter oat varieties in our trials. Cosaque's late maturity enables producers to wait beyond the rainy spring season before harvesting for hay or silage, greatly improving chances for capturing top quality and palatability.

Winter oats tend not to be as winter hardy as wheat or cereal rye. However, Cosaque has survived central Kentucky winters quite well over the past two years while growing in plots and seed production fields. Thus, it appears to have acceptable winter hardiness for regions south of the Ohio River.
