Is NutriMill artiste made by Bosch?

How do you harvest naked oats?
To harvest your oats, just cut the seed heads from the stalks. You can cut the stalks anywhere along the length, but the higher up you cut, the less straw you’ll have to deal with when you are threshing. A sharp knife or garden sickle will work fine. Once the seed heads are harvested, you will need to let them cure.
