Oat silage yield as affected by time of application of nitrogen fertilizer seeding rate and planting date
Read, J.C.; Jones, R.M.
Texas Agricultural Experiment Station Progress Report 4537: 29-30
This test was conducted at Texas A and M University Research and Extension Centers at Dallas and Stephenville [Texas, USA] to determine if time of nitrogen (N) fertilizer application, plant density, and planting date would affect yield and winterkill of oats. Winter-hardy ('H833') and winter-sensitive ('Cornado') cultivars were planted. The only winterkill was on plots of the early planting date of Cornado at Dallas which had 100 percent stand loss. There were no differences in silage yield due to either time of N application or seeding rate at Dallas but there were differences for both of these treatments at Stephenville. Plots of the early planting date produced the highest yields in most cases.
