Author Affiliations +

AAC Noranda is a white-hulled, spring oat (Avena sativa L.) cultivar bred by the Ottawa Research and Development Center of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in Ottawa, ON. It was supported for registration by the Ontario Cereal Crops Committee in January 2015 and registered in Canada on 12 Feb. 2016 (Canadian Food Inspection Agency registration no. 7912). AAC Noranda is adapted widely to Canada but more so to Ontario and Zone 1 of Quebec. AAC Noranda has a beta-glucan level around 5.0%, which is distinctly higher than the check cultivars (around 4.3%). It has combined good levels of grain yield, beta-glucan, groat, and oil and is an approved milling oat cultivar by the millers.
