Don't seed them that high. what your doing is seeding them at 7.6 bushels an acre. that is way to high. I seed mine at 3.15 bushels an ace and I would seed them comfortable at 2.5 bu an acre. I have seen trails at 1.75 bu acre yield just as well as 3 bushel. Seeding to heavy will reduce your bushel weight which is very important in the food market. You will also have possible lodging and poor yield. Better to put the extra oats in a mini bulk bag and save for next year. PATERSON GRAIN has done seeding rate trails in conjunction with General Mills At the Winnipeg terminal.
