VILLASENOR MIR, Héctor Eduardo et al. Turquesa, new oat cultivar for forage and grain production in Mexico. Agric. Téc. Méx [online]. 2009, vol.35, n.4, pp. 487-492. ISSN 0568-2517.
In 2007 the area sown to oat (Avena sativa L.) in Mexico was superior to 800 000 ha. The new cv. Turquesa is of spring habit and was developed at Valle de Mexico Experimental Station from a simple cross between the experimental line F2 CV-83(5-0C) 8C-0C / Karma. Turquesa and eight check cultivars were grown from 2002 to 2008 under rainfall conditions in 132 yield trials; the average seed yield of Turquesa was 3 043 kg ha-1, superior to all checks from 13.2% in cv. Karma to 57.6% in cv. Opalo. The forage production of Turquesa, average from ten locations was superior to 11.0 ha-1, significantly superiorto all commercial checks.
