For the first time I bought some TAMO seeds (Texas A&M) TAM 114 wheat and TAMO 411 oats from Justin Seed Company, they made me sign a document saying I cannot resell the seeds or seeds of the plants that are grown from those seeds.
Texas A&M developed TAMO 411 in College Station, Texas. This Oat cross was first made in 2003 between TAMO 405/LA9339 (Plot Spike) and was assigned the experimental line of TX05CS347-1. TAMO 411 has excellent grain yield, test weight, forage potential, winter hardiness, and straw strength as compared to all recent Texas A&M oat releases. It is also highly resistant to current crown rust races in Texas,and moderately resistant to current stem rust races prevalent in Texas.Comparison to other oats TAMO 411 was tested in Texas during a severe drought over the 2008 to 2014 time period.
Texas test results show that it is a solid grain and forage yielder during this time period. The most impressive result was that it was a top performer in a much larger area than just Texas and did well in Florida, Georgia, and Louisiana to Californian. YIELD During a drought period this data may not repeat its self but in Ellis County Texas TAMO 411 placed 3rd with 112.4 Bu/Ac over a 4 year average, 3rd in McGregor, 6th in Farmersville, 1st in Chillicothe, 2nd Castroville. Dueto the drought conditions a 4 year average should be a better indication of what TAMO 411 is capable.In 2014 TAMO 411 was increased in Cook County, Texas which incurred drought and record breaking freezes and yield equally with Nora and TAMO 606.Indicating that TAM) 411 has good winter hardiness. FORAGE At College Station TAMO 411 has placed in the top forage yielders, with being the top oat producer on a 2 year average and second oat on a 3 year average. Similar results occurred in Vernon and Comanche on the 2013 forage report.LIMITATION Based off growing trials this oat should have a large adaptation area in the winter oat growing region.
TAM 114 is a hard red winter variety with excellent drought tolerance and top yield potential combined with a superior disease package. While developed for the high plains it's resistant to leaf rust, stripe rust, and stem rust has expanded the growing region off the high plains and in to central Texas. TAM 114 offers a better disease package than TAM 111, TAM 112, and TAM 113. TAM 114 offers excellent backing a milling quality.
