The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development's 2019 Oat Variety Sowing Guide provides a comparison of grain yield, grain quality, hay yield, hay quality, herbicide tolerance and disease resistance for new and established milling oat varieties.

With the tightening of receival standards for 2019/20 we encourage growers to have a look at variety options, and the influence of agronomy on grain quality which can be found within the guide. 

This guide is designed to help determine which oat variety to grow in your region, whether that is for milling grain or export hay. The guide provides variety characteristics, disease ratings, and agronomic information for milling oat varieties that offer growers the best opportunity to meet market requirements. This guide should be read in conjunction with industry information provided in the Grains Industry of Western Australia's Oat variety and grade update (available from the GIWA website).

The variety guide also features details about the new oat variety Kowari, which is available for sowing in 2019.

Kowari is approved as a milling oat variety in Western Australia, and is accepted for delivery into milling grades OAT1 and OAT2.
