Adapted and Resilient OATS for Northern periphery areas

What we do

Climate change will prolong the growing season in the NPA regions and increase the potential of agriculture. Oat as an already important export crop and as a plant that thrives in cool climate would be logical choice to start increasing cereal production. Healthiness of oats and new oat products create demand for oat production and in the long run the conditions to cultivate good quality oats in the South may weaken. Thus we want to increase oat cultivation in Northern Scandinavia and in Iceland to create conditions for local growth in farming and cereal industry. The project will conclude with the main project application.
