Description

Heritage Status: New Zealand
Bio-Region of Origin: Canterbury
Number of Seeds: 120 seeds to plant 1m² at 10cm diagonal spacings

Description: These oats can be easily grown BioIntensively, harvested and threshed by hand. They will require us developing our techniques for threshing, perhaps using flails, two sticks joined by a piece of strong leather to beat the seed to clean it. They are a traditional oat cultivar, that would have been part of the diet of many of our ancestors from Europe. Oats are one of our preferred carbon crop because of their ability to unlock calcium and phosphate from our soils in NZ

Planting instructions: Scatter sow into trays Autumn or early Spring and transplant at 10cm diagonal spacing into beds when 5cm high.
