Oats

 

 

 
Research  Viral resistance
Field trials USA 1
Approvals None
Perspective A commercial use of GM oats is not to be expected in the long run.

 

Cultivation

Today, oat, originally a grain of the temperate climate region of the north, is cultivated worldwide. Leading cultivating countries are Russia, Canada, USA, Poland, Finland and Australia. In 2005, 24,6 million tons oats were cultivated on approximately 11,8 million hectares of land.

 

Utilisation

Due to the high content of protein, lecithin, vitamins and minerals, oats count as one of the grains with the most nutritional value. The iron content is similarly high to that in fish. 

Oats are processed into

  • grain nutriments, especially oatmeal
  • feed grain for horses, cattle, and poultry

An EU Research Project

What are the risks of growing GM crops?

What are the benefits?

Numerous studies have addressed the potential impacts of genetically modified (GM) plants. Yet the existing evidence on the effects of GM plants is often contradictory and the quality of scientific research varies widely.

Therefore, the GRACE project will establish new tools for assessing the quality of existing studies and will conduct comprehensive reviews to identify health, environmental and socio-economic impacts of GM plants.
