Variety Positioning

  • Still the second most widely grown spring oat across the UK. Sitting in the middle of the pack for yield with decent kernel content and low screenings. Canyon has continued to impress on farm, particularly further north. This is the “go-to” oat for those looking for consistency but is not accepted by all mills so this will need checking.
  • Tall straw of average strength means this is manageable with PGRs. Canyon is marginally earlier to mature than other varieties.
  • Canyon offers excellent mildew resistance but is susceptible to crown rust, so a standard fungicide program should see this variety stay clean and perform well.
