60 Days. Avena sativa. Oat is a cool weather crop that can withstand light frost but will die back in the winter or at temperatures below 5 to 10°F.

About Organic Organic Whole Oats Cover Crop Garden Seeds
Oat seeds are sown in the spring as a companion cover crop that benefits legumes and boosts their nutrients, such as winter peas. Oat cover crops have been planted as winterlong covers that you could let stand and die off without termination. These plants also make an ideal cover crop for suppressing weeds. When it comes time to harvest, some gardeners let their oat stand and die back themselves. This way, the plants can become a low-maintenance soil cover that will continue to decompose throughout winter and provide fertile ground for your spring planting. However, be aware of how some viable seeds could be left to germinate next season. To avoid this, you can harvest the mature crops through a low-mow method, or by using a no-till roller crimper.
Sow oat seeds in either fall for an early autumn harvest, or in the spring for a late summer harvest. It is recommended to sow 6 to 10 weeks before your region's final frost, as oats are frost hardy and can withstand cold temperatures as low as 5-10°F. Germination will take 3 weeks as oat plants are quicker to sprout. These plants prefer moist, well-drained soil and require more watering than other grains, growing up to 4 feet tall and maturing around 60 days. If you decide to terminate as your harvesting method, you can use a non-tilling method such as adding an herbicide that's compatible with the type of crop you want to plant next.
