Ongoing projects

Three projects are currently on the priority list i.e high β-glucan oat, oat with a high protein content and Fusarium tolerant oat. However, also high avenanthramide- and oats with high lipid content are of interest.

The common theme of these projects is to develop oat with increased levels of health promoting bioactive molecules. In one case (Fusarium) the goal is to decrease levels of various mycotoxings in the oat grain.
