YEN Yield Testing

YEN Yield Testing

Since the YEN began in 2012, the farmers, advisors and scientists involved have…

Agronomics Analysis: Gauging confidence in crop yield comparisons

ADAS has developed a new way for farmers to test their decisions which it calls ‘agronomics analysis’

Treasury of Ideas

At college, we are taught that all crops develop (age) in response to temperature and daylength; then they grow by capturing light energy and water.

But this knowledge is not widely used…

Biostimulants – Much still to learn

The end of year report for amino acid biostimulants reads ‘could do better’. CPM finds out where the independent evidence suggests we’ve got to on the learning curve.


To read…

Farmers work together to test yield enhancing ideas

The YEN Yield Testing (YYT) project held a workshop for farmers, agronomists, researchers and members of the industry who had been involved in five different Farmer Innovation Groups (FIGs) in the…

Spring Potash – may sometimes be needed to support high yields

Spring potash applications caused yield increases at two out of seven sites with potash-releasing clays. 

Potassium (K) is an important nutrient for…

Crop Momentum: a new way to think about yield enhancement – but not yet proven

Across eight sites in one season, only two tests of momentum treatments were significant

The idea of crop momentum arose because high yields in the YEN…

Oilseed Rape ‘Cross Drilling’: field tests show the value of close rows

Plant spacing proves to be important for OSR; of three sites where cross-drilling was tested, the two with wide rows (0.5m) showed positive yield effects, and one…

Join the YEN Yield Testing Network

Thank you for your interest in joining YEN Yield Testing. Whilst current funding for the YYT project has now ended we hope to continue to develop YEN Yield Testing and the FIG approach to farm…
