NF402 and Heavy Grazer II have both shown excellent winter hardiness when compared to other oat cultivars grown in the Southern Great Plains.
Noble Research Institute develops improved varieties of small grains (wheat, rye, triticale and oat) and perennial cool-season forages (tall fescue and alfalfa). Since 1956, Noble Research Institute has released 25 forage varieties.
Advanced line trials will be evaluated in 2019 for performance in a broader range of geographic areas as a step toward release of commercial cultivars adapted for us as cover crops.
In May 2017, the cover crop breeding network met to identify plant species and traits that would be evaluated and improved for use as cover crops across the U.S.
In addition to advanced line trials, sensor box validation trials were initiated in 2020 at each collaborator site to develop prediction models using height.
The primary goal of Noble Research Institute’s Small Grains Breeding Program is to develop small grains cultivars with increased grazing tolerance, winter hardiness, forage yield and forage quality to benefit livestock production.
Forage cultivars that work well on the Great Plains, including rye, wheat, oat, clover, crabgrass, tall fescue and triticale, are now available!
