Heather McCalman of the IBERS Grassland Development Centre, Aberystwyth, says: "Naked oats are an ideal crop for marginal areas, where the climate and soils aren't suitable for growing wheat and can help organic producers meet the 100% organic feed rule even on mainly grassland farms.
"As the crop is tolerant and flexible, we believe it has a role to play in helping organic poultry producers address concerns over the cost and sourcing of organic cereals."
