Management

Organic Tiger Oats are an excellent spring planted forage crop. Oats work the best in a baleage/haylage management system; however, they can work well in a strip grazing system. They adapt well to the wet soils, and can be uses as a nurse crop for alfalfa when necessary. 

Establishment

Seeding rates are 2-3 bu per acre. 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. Seed should be placed in a firm seed bed 1/2 to 3/4 inch deep.
