Durack Kowari Oat Variety Accreditation Update

16-Mar-2018


The GIWA Oat Council has released milling accreditation results for two oat varieties Durack and Kowari from the National Oat Breeding Program SARDI, distributed by Heritage Seeds in WA, see media release below.

The medium to low rainfall variety Durack has been accredited as Oat 2 only in WA due to nutritional characteristics; the Mitika heritage variety Kowari has been classified as Oat 1, with advice about some limitations for yield potential in the WA oat agronomic regions.

For trial results please refer to National Variety Trials and the DPIRD Oat Agronomy Guide 2018.
