UW-SAREC (LINGLE):    The experiment was located at the University of Wyoming Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center in Lingle, Wyoming during 2007.  Fertilizer was applied at the rate of 100 pounds N and 30 pounds P2O5 per acre.  Ten oat varieties were established in plots 5 by 20 feet using double disk openers set at a row spacing of 9 inches on 21 March.   Weeds were controlled by a post application of bromoxynil and MCPA (Bronate Advanced) broadcast at 0.40 and 0.40 pounds active ingredient per acre.  Subplots, 5 by 15 feet, were harvested using an Almaco combine on 19 July.
