The nutrient-rich oats

The oat – colloquially in Southern Germany, in Austria and in Switzerland also sometimes called Haber – is one of the most nutrient-rich among the cereals. Botanically, oats belong to the sweet grass family and there are about 25 species of oats. Thanks to its widely ramified roots, it is not only very rich in nutrients but also resistant to diseases and can grow quite undemandingly even on less fertile soils.
