U.S. PVP No. 201600313
U.S. Patent 9961852
Description: ‘FL0720’ is a winter oat variety that was co-developed by the Louisiana State University Agricultural Center and the University of Florida and is released under the SUNGRAINS cooperative small grain breeding program among five Southeastern Universities.
‘FL0720’ is considered to be a good forage type oat because of its full season vigorous growth and high tillering capacity. It is tall in height, late maturity, has good grain yield, good test weight, yellow kernels, and has excellent crown rust resistance to the new strain of crown rust that eastern oats has been susceptible to in Florida. ‘FL0720’ has performed very well in both grain and forage trials, and is broadly adapted to the Southeastern U.S.; however this oat is slightly less winter hardy than ‘Horizon 201’ and may not perform as well as ‘Horizon 201’ in the colder areas where adapted.
