Naked oats can represent a partial substitute for traditional cereals, the acreage of which tends to decrease due to excess production or lower efficiency under ecological agriculture. The significance of cereal products has been growing and the range of use of products made of naked oats in this country, as well as the export potential, have increased. The naked oats varieties of Czech origin are of world top standard in terms of yield, health conditions and grain quality, (low hull content, high protein values).

This contribution evaluates standardized and further significant quality parameters of naked oats, (volume weight, size classification, TGW, black grain content, huskiness) as well as the chemical composition of naked oats grains (nitrogen substances, aminoacids, fat, higher fatty acids, roughage, minerals).
Naked oats are very suitable crops for ecological systems farming, because this crop uses the natural conditions of the environment very well. Naked oats aren't exacting. It's also resistant to diseases and have the ability to compete with weeds.
