Lancer, C.I. 9256, is a spring oat variety developed by South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station and released January 1979. While being tested, it was designated SD 9095.
Lancer combines excellent straw strength, good yields, and high groat protein content. Performance records indicate it is probably the best adapted high protein oat for South Dakota (Table 1).
Seed was increased in 1978 by Foundation Seed Stock Division, South Dakota State University. Minnesota also participated in the simultaneous increase of Lancer seed.
