Key Features

  • Graza 53 is known for its broad, long leaf structure
  • Suited to most soil types
  • Responds best to more frequent light grazing rather than severe defoliations early in the growing period
  • Early vigour and quick recovery after grazing
  • High palatability and forage quality are two strong points for this line
  • Ideal in dryland regions from 400mm plus through to irrigation
  • High level leaf rust resistance (DAF Qld 2017)


Graza 53 achieves a high degree of dry weather tolerance over other oats of similar maturity. Graza 53 can produce high dry matter production after second and third grazings.

Disease Resistance/Tolerance

Through breeding selection and over 3 years of trialling, Graza 53 has demonstrated superior resistance to leaf rust in a wide variety of dryland and irrigated sites across NSW and Victoria.


Graza 53 is a new mid-maturity line that is longer than Graza 51.
