In field trials in 1972-3, oats Noble and an A. sativa X A. sterilis hybrid which had medium and high groat protein content, respectively, were harvested at 2- to 3-day intervals from anthesis until several days after maturity and groat DM and protein content and soluble protein fractions were measured. Increases in DM and protein content ended about 22 and 28 days after flowering, respectively.
