A very popular tall and leafy western oat. Jerry is very good in forage production and quality as well as a good grain and straw producer. Mix with peas as a nurse crop for alfalfa or seed for some quick feed in the Fall.
- A good all around oat
- Forage or grain
- Forage yield is much better than a common oat
Jerry Oats are an excellent spring-planted forage crop. While oats tend to be very good quality, there is a large variation in quality from different varieties. We have tested Jerry Oats extensively to ensure that the forage we offer have good disease resistance, as well as excellent quality.
Seeding rates are 2 to 3 bu per acre. Jerry Oat seed should be placed in a firm seedbed 1/2 to 3/4 inch deep. In the case of a nurse crop, the rate should be reduced to 30 lbs per acre for grass and 50 lbs per acre for alfalfa.
Jerry Oats work the best in a balage/haylage management system; however they can work well in a strip grazing system. They adapt well to the wet soils, and can be used as a nurse crop for alfalfa when necessary.
