Always looking for high quality!

The next “Speaking of Oats…” (SOO) webinar will be held Tuesday, November 23rd, at 2:00 pm (1400 hrs) Eastern time (EST - Canada/USA).

**Please note that this is not our usual day or time**

Nancy Ames, Sijo Joseph, and Lovemore Malunga (Richardson Centre for Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals and Morden RDC, AAFC, Winnipeg MB, Canada) will talk to us about "Advancements in Oat Quality". Registration for this webinar is NOW OPEN. You can check the time offset for your location here.

Many thanks to Axel Diederichsen for talking to us last month about Plant Gene Resources of Canada and helping us understand the complexities of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture! The video from Axel's talk as well as the one from September concerning crown rust have now been posted. Our apologies for the delays - we lost the invaluable help of Grant Czadzeck recently (congratulations on the new position, Grant!) and have been having some technical difficulties.

If you would like to nominate yourself or someone else as a speaker for future SOO webinars, please use our handy new form!

There are other quality-related events on the calendar this month, as well. November 16th is "International Whole Grain Day" and parts 2 and 3 of the Cereals & Grains 2021 series are on November 17th and 18th.

More news concerning a wide range of topics will be in the next full Oat Newsletter update, which should be posted in a few days!
