As oat is an important crop in the Nordic and Baltic countries, oat-related research has also been active in many universities and research institutes. This has also resulted in numerous new food uses of oat. In 2004 the 7th International Oat Conference was arranged in Helsinki. In the adjacent pages we attempt to feature some recently finished and on-going research themes.
Colleagues in oat research, we would be pleased to add information about your current projects.
