Interpretive Summary: 'Paul' is a spring naked oat that was developed at the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station (NDAES) in cooperation with the USDA-ARS and released by the NDAES in 1994. Based on 35 location/years in Uniform Midseason Oat Performance Nursery, Paul is high yielding and has late maturity. Compared to the naked cultivar Tibor, Paul produced 18% higher naked grain yield, higher test weight, later heading, shorter plant height, similar percent whole oat protein, and lower lodging scores. Paul exhibited excellent resistance to stem rust, crown rust, and barley yellow dwarf virus.

Technical Abstract: 'Paul' is a spring naked oat that was developed at the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station (NDAES) in cooperation with the USDA-ARS and released by the NDAES in 1994. The pedigree of Paul is CI9221/Hudson//RL3038/Dal/3 /RPB120-73/RL3038//Noble/4 /O 2998-22/5/O 22557A6-100-5/3/RL3038/Dal//Noble. The comparative grain yield of Paul in North Dakota Oat Variety Trials during 1990-1994 averaged over 25 locations was higher than Dumont, but not as high as Newdak. Compared to the naked cultivar Tibor, Paul produced 18% higher naked grain yield, higher test weight, later heading, shorter plant height, similar percent whole oat protein, and lower lodging scores. Paul exhibited excellent resistance to stem rust, crown rust, and barley yellow dwarf virus.
