In order to provide growers, exporters, and consumers with the desired hay quality and quantity, oat variety development for hay end use is essential to maintain Australia’s competitive advantage. This research project continues the National Oat Breeding Program to improve oat varieties for hay production by selecting and promoting advanced breeding lines. The latest hay variety release, Koorabup, has significantly improved septoria resistance compared to popular hay varieties.
