From Abstracts to Zoom - part two

Let's begin the second part of this update with a word about where I find a lot of the information I share with you. Much of it comes from those I follow as @OatNewsletter on Twitter. I have not noticed much of a change in the type of content I see there since Elon Musk took over the platform; however, I am seeing large gaps in my timeline, which should be chronological. If any of you would like to make sure that I see what you tweet, then please tag me.

‘QualitEEE’ oats

Quality has always been important when it comes to oats and oat research, and now we should consider oat 'qualitEEE' as well! The 'EEE' stands for 'Engage, Enable, and Evolve'.
