Do I have to enter a whole field?

Can I enter more than one field?

You can enter as many fields as you like into any or all of the Yield Enhancement Networks.

Can I enter trials into YEN?

Trials can be entered into YEN, and these are separated into their own category for awards. Please contact us before submitting trials entries as we may require additional information.

Is all the information requested mandatory?

Some of the data requested is mandatory in order to have a valid entry. In these cases you will not be able to register the entry without providing the information. Provision of additional non-mandatory data will enable us to provide a more detailed analysis in your final report.
