New Recommended List out now (RGCL)

Monday, June 6, 2016

The new edition of the England and Wales Recommended List is now available on the BGS website, where you can find pdf versions of the farmer and merchant handbooks as well as an interactive spreadsheet and link through to the on-line tool hosted by AHDB.

The Lists are based on attributes such as yield, persistency, quality and disease resistance, using  data from trials carried out by the NIAB-TAG, IBERS, DLF Trifolium, DSV, Barenbrug, AFBI and SRUC.

The Lists also include data on a number of lucerne varieties as well as the latest results for grass and clover, including hybrid varieties.

You can access the on-line resources by finding RGCL on the BGS website navigation or clicking here
