Oats - Booting stage

It refers to the 3-4 months of the growing stage of oats. The most appropriate time for sowing oats differs in the lower valleys and the higher alpine ranges.

In the lower valleys, oats are sown in December/ January and the booting stage is reached in the months of March and April. At this time no other fodder or grass is available except oats.

In the higher alpine regions, oats are planted in the months of April and May when the Yak herders migrate to the higher pastures.
