Oats : Oats are planted as a grain crop, annual forage crop, catch-crop for nitrogen, cover crop ( to control erosion, and for adding organic matter to the soil as a green manure ) and for wildlife food plots for deer and other wildlife. Oats are less winter hardy than wheat, barley, or rye and will generally suffer yield losses when the temperature falls below 20 degrees F. Oats grow best in silt and clay-loam soils that have a good moisture retention ability. Oats are an excellent crop for most food plots as they will both attract and hold wildlife because they are fast to establish and produce wide leaves, that deer and other wildlife love to eat. During the first months of growth oats are high in protein 14% to 18% and are easily digestible to wildlife.
