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 produces a very high forage yield under both dryland and irrigated conditions. It has good recovery from grazing and will tolerate heavy grazing. The stem and leaf thickness of Aladdin make it suitable for oaten hay production. Aladdin’s late maturity helps to keep quality through the growing season which means a long window of opportunity for grazing if sufficient rainfall during the season will allow repeated grazings

     

    Disease Resistance

    Aladdin is susceptible to most Australian pathotypes of leaf rust. Aladdin is moderately susceptible to stem rust in common with all other commercial varieties. It is also moderately susceptible to bacterial blight and septoria leaf blight. Moderately resistant to BYDV.

     

    Product Fit

    Over the last few years Aladdin has become susceptible to both leaf and stem rust. Growers are advised to apply the appropriate management plans to minimise plant damage from rust. Aladdin is suitable to grow in all forage oat growing areas, including sub tropical and selected tropical environments.

     

    Breeding History

    Aladdin was selected by Bruce Winter from DEEDI forage oat breeding program at Leslie Research Centre Toowoomba.

    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.
