While I can’t say for certain, it is my understanding that the disease resistance breeding which produced the reducing effect in the microbiome occurred in the 1960’s, and because of severe disease pressure, quickly became practically all of the plant oat varieties.
I would guess if it is still around, it likely has a suppressive biome, but that is just a best guess.
