Barley is an annual or biennial grass that is widely cultivated for yielding grain for breakfast food, animal feed and in malt beverages. Black barley, awnless, hooded, 2 row, 6 row, different awn lengths and different spike lengths characterize the many barley types.


Buckwheat is an erect-growing, annual plant,with broad heart-shaped leaves and a faddish colored stem. It establishes very quickly, has low heat requirements for development, and will produce a crop in 80-90 days. Buckwheat grows vegetatively and flowers until killed by frost. Buckwheat has been primarily used for humans and livestock, honey crop, smother crop and green manure.

Cereal Rye

Cereal rye is a hardy annual grass that is widely cultivated for grain production, forage and soil improvement. Due to
the late harvest of many crops, fall-planted cover crops often do not make adequate growth to provide winter soil protection, but cereal rye can germinate and grow under cooler conditions than other covers. Cereal rye can also be used for spring forage production, and fed as pasture, green chop, or put up as haylage.


The oat plant is an annual grass with kinds and varieties adapted either to fall planting and midsummer harvest or spring planting and late summer harvest. Most oats are used for livestock feed in this
country either as grain, pasture, hay or silage. Less than 5% of the total oat production in this country is used as food for human consumption. The human consumption is mainly in the form of breakfast foods and oat flour.
