The new single-cut oat variety, HFO 529, was developed by Forage Section, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar. It was released and notified for cultivation under timely sown, normal fertility and irrigated conditions in Hill Zone of the country (Himachal Pradesh and UT of Jammu & Kashmir). It was developed through pedigree method of breeding. This variety gave 274.4 q/ha green fodder yield in Hill Zone which is 4.0% higher than the national check OS-6 (263.8 q/ha) and almost at par with kent (272.5 q/ha) and the zonal check SKO 96 (271.8 q/ha). In case of dry matter yield, the variety HFO 529 (70.6 q/ha) out yielded the national checks OS 6 (63.8 q/ha) by 10.7% and Kent (67.6 q/ha) by 4.4% and the zonal check SKO 96 (66.9 q/
ha) by 5.5% in Hill Zone of the country. The variety HFO 529 gave a seed yield of 24.2 q/ha which is almost at par with the best national checks Kent (24.9 q/ha) and OS 6 (23.7 q/ha). This variety is showing 9.7% crude protein which is 6.6% superior to national check Kent (9.1%) and almost at par with the national check OS-6 (9.8%), zonal check SKO 96 (9.5%) and best qualifying variety SKO-240 (9.6%).
