This program started in 2012 with 7 participants growing and selecting 21 populations on farms in Alberta and Manitoba. In 2014 there were 13 farmers growing 42 oat populations in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and Prince Edward Island.
The PPB oat program functions similarly to the PPB wheat program. For more information on planting and selection methods please refer to the wheat program description or the oat breeding manual (link at the bottom of the page).
