Abstract

Iowa farmers who typically use a two-crop (corn/soybean) rotation could benefit from adding a third crop to reduce weed and pathogen problems, while improving soil quality. Oat is one of the most common alternative crops in Iowa, but has been hindered by unreliable yields. The potential performance increase in oat variety blends over pure-live varieties was investigated.
