Graza 53 forage oats (PBR)

Graza 53 is a mid-long season oat with good rust resistance to current strains.

TARGET AREAS: Australia wide.

Some of Graza 53’s features include high palatability and feed quality, a broad long-leaf structure, early vigour and quick recovery from grazing.

Suitable for most soil types, Graza 53 is a versatile all-rounder for producers who require grazing, hay or silage production.
