Grains Australia is pleased to announce that its recently formed Oat Varietal Classification Technical Committee has classified InterGrain’s oat variety 13008-18 as a milling oat, under the new National Oat Variety Classification Framework.

This classification – the first made under Grains Australia’s new framework – will open the door for InterGrain’s first milling oat release.

Grains Australia congratulates InterGrain and those personnel that have worked to bring this variety to the marketplace.

An evaluation on Seednet’s oat variety Koala is still pending and an update is expected to be provided to the industry in coming months when further information is anticipated to be available.
