Kernel size in naked oat (Avena sativa L.) is of interest because of the importance of groat size in determining flake size in ‘‘old fashioned’’ style oat flakes. Here we compared naked oat kernel size distributions with those of hulled oat (Avena sativa L.). Most hulled oat spikelets have twokernels, where the primary kernel is distinctly larger than the secondary kernel. Although naked oat panicle architecture was similar to that of hulled oat, naked oat had a distinctive multiflorous… Expand
