CS Camden has proven to be a reliable performer consistently at the top of the yield charts. CS Camden is a variety capable of achieving yields in excess of 180 bu/ac under good growing conditions yet still produces easily marketable grain quality. CS Camden has moved into the top spot as the most planted variety among Manitoba oat producers on account of its continued performance.
CDC Haymaker is a forage oat line that offers a BIG biomass advantage in the field vs normal milling oat varieties. CDC Haymaker produces huge leaves and thick stems to deliver impressive forage tonnage. Growers have been finding success with CDC Haymaker in greenfeed, silage, and swath grazing applications both grown alone or in a forage blend. Our new forage pea line DL Goldeye makes an excellent pairing with CDC Haymaker for planting an oat/pea forage blend.
ORe3541M is a new release from SeCan developed by independent Canadian oat breeder Jim Dyck and his company Oat Advantage. It is very good news for Canadian oat growers to be gaining access to a new source of oat genetics to diversify and push forward improved oat varieties. We have been able to produce this line through seed increase over the last 3 seasons and have seen it deliver great yields and the highest test weight of all the oat varieties we grew in all 3 years of production. 2018 saw extremely dry conditions on our farm yet ORe3541M still produced 255 gram sample weights and a superior grain sample to our other oat varieties. ORe3541M not only delivers on grain quality but also with top level yield potential. In head to head comparison to CS Camden in 2017 ORe3541M produced the same yields with both varieties producing tremendous 184 bu/ac totals.
