A good companion plant for legumes. Sow in mid-September to mid-October for over-wintering, keeping in mind that oats will not regrow in the spring like Winter Rye. If you want to produce grain, sow in early spring. Oats are early to mature and produce high yields. Will winter kill.
Seeding rate of 4 lbs. per 1,000 square feet or 125-150 lbs./acre broadcast.
