Aladdin

Forage Oat

  • Complete resistance to all Australian pathotypes of leaf rust
  • Semi erect growth habit – early growth prior to initial grazing
  • Large seed size
  • Good seedling vigour
  • Low growing point and therefore is more tolerant to heavy grazing
  • Excellent growth during the cooler winter months

    Aladdin is a new forage oat cultivar that is very late maturing and produces exceptionally high forage yield, with complete rust resistance to all Australian pathotypes.

     

    Disease Resistance:

    • Moderately susceptible to stem rust in common with all other commercial varieties.
    • Moderately susceptible to bacterial blight and septoria leaf blight
    • Moderately resistant to BYDV.

     

    Key Features:

    • Complete rust resistance
    • Aladdin produces a very high forage yield under both dryland and irrigated conditions
    • Good recovery from grazing and will tolerate heavy grazing
    • The stem and leaf thickness of Aladdin make it suitable for oaten hay production
    • Late maturity helps to keep quality through the growing season which means a long window of opportuniy for grazing if sufficient rainfall during the season will allow repeated grazings

     

    Product Fit:

    Aladdin is suitable for all forage oat growing areas in central Queensland, southern Queensland and northern New South Wales. The high leaf rust resistance of Aladdin means it is also suitable for planting in coastal and higher rainfall areas.

     

    Breeding History:

    • Aladdin is a new forage oat cultivar selected by Bruce Winter from DEEDI forage oat breeding program at Leslie Research Centre Toowoomba.
    • Aladdin has provisional PBR protection.

     

    Heritage Seeds Product Position:

    • Aladdin will replace Volta because it has the advantages of complete resistance to all Australian pathotypes of leaf rust
    • Exceptional high forage yield under both dryland and irrigated conditions.
    • Good recovery from grazing and excellent growth during the cooler winter months.
    • The stem and leaf thickness of Aladdin make it suitable for oaten hay production.
    Forage Cereals & Herbs

    Oats, wheat, barley or triticale, have the potential to be an integral part of providing year round feed in a dryland farming system. They provide feed to overcome autumn & winter forage shortages, allow the making of whole crop cereal silage & provide the dual options of grazing & grain production.
