Sorry. Brettania out yielded the tractor by ten and the pinnacles by 20 bpa. I am located at carlyle skWoodytr99, your saying Brettania outyielded Triactor by 20 bushels and stood better?
Where are you located?
Who carries Brettania?
Is Brettania a milling oat for human? Or pony oats?
What's your theory with blending the three varieties? I realize you're bringing the poorer variety up but you're also dragging your average down. My buyers are almost as concerned with consistency as quality.Triactor has lighter test weight, but great yield and standability. We would grow 1/3 our production and blend it up. Definitely not a direct milling oat. A pass through debearder is always a help.
Depending on seed size 85 to 110 pounds/acre.Sorry to hijack but how heavy do you seed? Last few years we seed around 3 bu but have seeded before at 2 bu. I wonder how bu weight is affected by seed rate. I think weed competition is not as bad with the heavy seed rate but wonder about weight.
Souris never gives us those huge thunderous yields but is always consistent in test weight, plump and color.How does souris compare in yield? We've done Orrin Morgan souris and triactor and the best so far has been Morgan for all around performance. Good standing, high test weight, good bushels. I was unhappy with triactor this year, flat as could be and light. Souris was ok but didn't yield as good. Not sure what we're doing for next year yet. In my area, we've been 140-170 avg in the last 3 years.
Just to clarify I base a bushel of oats on a 34 lb bushel weight (2204/64.8) the bushel weight of my brettania oats are 38+ lbs. even more once they are cleanedWe need to meet 38 pound specs.. Souris usually gives 42-45 whereas Triactor gives 34-36 bu weights. Pretty simple really.
