ABSTRACT
Nine exotic cultivars of oats collected from Renewable Natural Resources Research Centre, Bajo, Wangdue-Bhutan were evaluated at National Agricultural Research Centre, Islamabad, Pakistan during 2004-05 and 2005-06. These cultivars along with 2 local check entries were planted during winters of 2004-05 and 2005-06 under irrigated conditions. New exotic oats cultivar NZ-0034 with medium plant height (149.8 cm), more number of leaves (5.17), number of tillers per plant (6.45) and medium leaf area (125.7 cm²) produced higher green fodder and dry matter yields (94.68 and 25.51 t/ha). Higher fodder yields of NZ-0034 might be attributed to more stiffness of plants than other varieties. So this cultivar could be planted for high fodder yields and be used in breeding programmes to improve low yielding out-moded stock and develop high fodder yielding varieties of oats.
