Interpretive Summary: These results are used by oat breeders in the winter oat growing regions of the U.S. to determine the adaptability of the best experimental lines for possible release and production.
Technical Abstract: The purpose of the Uniform Winter Oat Yield Trial (UWOYT) is to evaluate winter-habit (fall-sown) oat advanced lines for adaptation to those areas in the United States where winter oats are grown commercially. The entries in the 2003-04 UWOYT were submitted by public oat breeding programs in Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas. A total of 29 entries (28 hulled and 1 (NC98-197N) hulless) were included in the trial. There were twelve testing locations for the 2002-03 UWOYT, with one in Alabama (Prattville), Arkansas (Stuttgart), Delaware (Sussex County), Florida (Quincy), Louisiana (Baton Rouge), and North Carolina (Kinston); and two in Georgia (Griffin and Plains); and Texas (Castroville and Prosper).
