Coker Oats

Coker Oats is a high-yielding, oat plant, similar to wheat, that is fast-growing. A great variety for all types of livestock and wildlife as they are typically higher in protein, vitamins and minerals. Typically germinating 5-7 days under optimal conditions. Coker Oats is a small grain that will usually reach their maximum height of 12-24" in a matter of weeks. Incorporating Coker Oats as a cover crop in your garden can lead to improved soil health, reduced erosion, weed pressure, enhanced nutrient cycling, and better overall crop yields. 60 days to maturity

Coker oats thrive in well-draining soil with good fertility. Work the soil to a fine texture and remove any weeds or debris that could hinder germination and growth. Plant Coker oats either in the fall for overwintering cover or in the spring as a cool-season crop. Broadcast the Seeds evenly over the prepared soil or use a seed spreader for larger areas. Aim for a seeding rate of about 2 to 3 pounds of seed per 1,000 square feet (or follow the package instructions). If planting in rows, space the rows about 6 to 12 inches apart.

Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the germination and early growth stages. Once established, they are more drought-tolerant.
