Avena sativa, commonly known as oats or green oats, is a species of cereal grain belonging to the Poaceae family. It is an annual grass that typically grows to a height of 0.5 to 1.5 meters. Oats have long, narrow leaves with parallel veins and hollow stems. The inflorescence of Avena sativa is a panicle, which consists of many small spikelets arranged on branches. Each spikelet contains multiple florets, each of which produces a single seed.
