OSR Yield Enhancement Network launched #arable #clubhectare

Currently the UK record for OSR yield stands at around 6.5t/ha set in 2015, but according to research, OSR grown in the UK has the potential to exceed 10t/ha.

 

In reality the average UK yield is only around 3.5t/ha according to ADAS, who say there are improvements to be made.

 

As with the cereals YEN, the OSR YEN will include a yield competition which is open to everyone and will provide an understanding of yield on each entrants own farm.

It will test entrants’ agronomy skills and innovative ideas, says ADAS, with the key aim of getting as close as possible to the yield potential of the entrants chosen site.

 

Growers who participate will benefit from an analysis of the components of yield on their farm and from an understanding of how to improve yields in future years.
