 Harvest results – Winter oilseed rape (east/west region)
Two further trials have now been added to the HGCA oilseed rape yields. The average yields for 2013 are uncannily similar to the four-year average at 5.4t/ha, says HGCA. Focusing on the four-year average, three RL varieties  PR46W21, Marathon and PT211 have all achieved a yield of 103 per cent of the average of the control varieties.
The candidates Incentive and Charger have performed well at 105, alongside Trinity at 104.
