Oat farming is a new and growing branch of grain farming in Iceland. The project is looking for suitable oat cultivation for cultivation in Iceland.

Experimental cultivation takes place in several places in the country. The project is managed by the Agricultural University of Iceland and the school's employees do breeding experiments. Matís is responsible for assessing the quality of the harvest, and Matís' sensory evaluation team is involved. The project began in 2021 and will end in 2022. The sponsor is Matvælasjóður.
