Oats - Dough stage

Oats reach the dough or seed production stage after 5-6 months of sowing. In the lower valleys, farmers produce their own oat seeds in addition to producing surplus seed for farmers in high altitude areas. After harvesting the seed, the straw is used for animal feed. In the valleys oat seed is generally harvested in June.
