Seed and Varieties Book 2017
As the new seasons bring new challenges so we are likely to see a change in the market share of crops grown in the UK.
We have seen the wheat market swing substantially into Group 1 and 2 in the last 5 years and now accounts for 33% of the area sown of which 24% is Group 1.
Hyvido barley now accounts for 25% of the winter barley crop that is planted and the spring area has grown again in 2016 to help with rotational control of blackgrass.
The oilseed rape market saw significant growth of Clearfield varieties in autumn 2016 which is likely to grow again in autumn 2017. There is also a significant proportion of the winter crop that belongs to varieties that can't be found on the AHDB list.
