Full Research Project Title: Independentvariety trials and variety selection
Duration: April 2002 - March 2005

Aim: To provide independent information of varieties on pest and disease resistance; as well as growth and yield, husbandry requirements and physical characteristics such as dry matter, fry colour, disintegration and discoloration.

This co-ordinated trials programme was carried out by the National Institute of Agricultural Botany and Sutton Bridge Crop Storage Research. The trials comprised of four core sites as well as supplementary sites with breeders and producer groups. As well as aiding in variety choice and making business decisions, the information will also aid growers in getting the best yield and delivering a crop of the required quality.
