    • High groat percentage


  • Premium milling variety and most commonly grown export hay variety
  • Tall variety with lower yields than dwarf varieties such as Wandering


  • Durack Oats is a moderately tall variety similar in height to Carrolup and measuring between 80 and 90cm. It is a short season (7 to 10 days earlier in maturity) than Carrolup or Williams.
  • Excellent grain quality with low screenings and high groat percentage.
  • Resistant to CCN R
  • Retains excellent grain quality even in a tough finish
  • Offers growers in medium to high rainfall zones a good option in case of a late break

Express Oats

  • Express is a high-performance forage oat variety ideal for farmers looking for more forage yield in grazing, or for hay/silage situations. Bred and developed by Barenbrug, Express is late maturing with excellent spring and overall yield performance. It benefits from excellent recovery after grazing compared to other similar varieties, plus excellent growth during winter when feed is most needed.


  • Koorabup (tested as 05096-32) is a new high yielding hay oat variety developed for WA with a similar height and similar or slightly later hay cutting time than Carrolup.
  • Koorabup has the best septoria resistance of any current hay variety. Hay and grain yields are similar to Carrolup. Hay colour is excellent with improved digestibility compared to Carrolup.
  • Koorabup has improved foliar disease resistance and grain quality compared to other current hay varieties and combines improved septoria resistance with good rust and bacterial blight resistances. Koorabup has better grain quality than Carrolup, low screenings and bright grain.
  • Koorabup has better lodging and shattering resistance than Wintaroo and Brusher and is similar to Mulgara.

Kowari - "New"

  • New High Yield Oat Variety to help reduce Cholesterol. It is dwarf in stature slightly taller than Mitika with excellent grain quality and will suit most traditional oat growing areas of Australia. It was derived from a cross between Mitaka and a WA breeders line.
  • Improved B-glucan content - 5.2%(dm basis) compared to 4.4% for Mitaka. Produces increased levels of beta glucan which helps to reduce blood cholesterol re-absorption.
  • Good 1000 grain weight
  • High protein and groat percentage
  • Competitive grain yield
