AFBI Crossnacreevy conducts trials on behalf of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) and the HGCA. The recommendations on this website are partly based on data collected within the Home Grown Cereal Authority (HGCA) Recommended List trialling system.
Full data collected from HGCA trials throughout the UK and the HGCA Recommended Lists are available on the HGCA website (www.hgca.com). Information on recommended varieties and other varieties currently in trial in Northern Ireland is also available at www.afbini.gov.uk.
The recommendations are reviewed and published annually.
Staff at AFBI Crossnacreevy wish to thank those cereal growers who permitted the siting of cereal variety trials on their farms.
