Technical Abstract: Cooperative Regional Performance Nursery data are presented and summarized for entries in the 2006 Uniform Early Oat Performance Nursery. The entries included 20 experimental lines from 6 public oat breeding programs plus 5 long-term check cultivars. The nursery was grown at 10 locations in 8 States. Evaluation of performance of elite lines across the wide range of environments aids the cooperators to identify potential cultivar releases and germplasm for use in new crosses. The nursery mean yield of 112.3 bu/A for 2006 was nearly 17 bu/A lower than the previous 2 years' nursery averages. Multiple location data are presented for seed quality and composition; for several disease reactions including rusts, smut, and barley yellow dwarf virus; and for various agronomic traits including yield, maturity date, and lodging resistance. The Nursery report will be posted on the Graingenes web site. The web site address is: http://wheat.pw.usda.gov/GG2/Avena/UE-MOPN.html.
