Linseed YEN

The Linseed Lite YEN was launched in 2024 with development funding from Premium Crops. Linseed lite YEN is a digital platform to benchmark husbandry, resource capture, and yield components. We hope that this increased knowledge base will help us find new ways to increase linseed yields on-farm.

All members will be provided with a comprehensive report, containing their potential yield and detailing how their crop performed and where improvements could be made. Please see the example Linseed YEN report.

In the UK, leading farms and research trials for winter linseed often achieve in excess of 4 t/ha. However, the average commercial farm produces much less - around 2 t/ha for spring linseed. This network is striving to address how to maximise yields in all situations via changes to agronomic decision making. Members are also invited to discuss results, experiences and ideas at the end of the season.


Annual Linseed YEN membership

Membership is open and available to anyone; farmers, agronomists, and researchers.

Membership includes:

  • Benchmarking of your crops' performance against other members on +30 factors, including fertiliser application and seed rate.
  • One entrance into the annual Linseed YEN competition* 
  • A comprehensive report on your crop’s performance
  • One ticket to the Annual YEN Conference

As part of your membership, you will receive a comprehensive report on your crop’s performance and constraints to yield to help you improve. See an example report for Linseed.

*Members can enter multiple fields; additional charges apply.

Membership fees

UK based individual Linseed YEN Membership is £150 (Excl VAT).

Where entries are supported by a UK based third party that is not an official YEN Sponsor, Membership is £200 (Excl VAT).

For all non-UK entries, Membership is £200.

Corporate Sponsors support the network to maintain its core activities.  Their vital role is recognised in all YEN publicity, media items, conference presentations, and on this website.

Sponsors have a key role in steering the evolution of the network and its activities.  They have access to network information, intelligence and discussions to support their own yield enhancement initiatives.

Sponsors can also make multiple competition entries, and have multiple attendance at the annual YEN conference.

A few sponsors will also contribute some or all of individual farmers membership fees.
