Naked oats (Avena nuda) are a cereal grain first grown in central Asia around 100 B.C. Currently, they are grown world-wide because they are the most nutritionally packed cereal grain available on the market. The name, "naked oats", was adopted because the grain is hull-less once it is harvested.
Nutritional benefits of Buck Busters Seed Company Naked Oats include higher protein, fat, and phosphorus, greater palatability, and high digestibility. Deer prefer naked oats for their sweeter taste and smoother texture.

Planting Recommendations for Buck Busters Naked Oats
Optimum planting time in most locations in the Southeast is September 1 - November 1, the earlier the better.
Planting rate is 50 lbs. per acre (much less than conventional oats).
Soil tests are recommended. A pH of 6.0 - 7.0 is desirable.
Prepare a good seed bed by disking or tilling as deeply as possible; the better the seed bed, the better the results.
