Outback Forage Oats
Seed Distributors - Science based pasture®

Outback oats are derived from South African, Australian and North American hay and grazing oat germplasm. Outback is selected for adaptation to the Australian agricultural environment. Outback is primarily a forage oat, developed to produce a large bulk of quality forage in autumn and again in spring. Outback can be grown in all areas suitable for growing oats and provides consistent grazing, for all classes of livestock, over an extended period.

Outback is a mid to late maturing oat with distinctive dark green and broad leaves. Outback oats provide higher yields of quality grazing throughout the critical autumn, winter and early spring grazing periods. Outback forage oats will come XLR8 treated. This protection aids in the early control of aphid feeding damage and helps with management of Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus (BYDV). Early seedling growth responses
