Approaching Oats as a Cash Crop

Oats are becoming a hot commodity as more grocery shoppers reach for oat-based products — but in the field we’re still treating them like a second class crop. This virtual field day will showcase the steps Scott Wedemeier has taken to step up oat production on his organic crop and livestock farm, including his participation in a cooperator trial for better oat variety selection. Other topics: transition to organic, cover crops, green manure, interseeding & relay cropping.
