When to expect results

Harvest Results data from RL trials is validated before publication. For winter-sown crops, most results are expected to be published by the time the associated RL Crop Committee meets to review the data. These dates are:

  • Oilseed rape – 15 August 2019
  • Barley – 22 August 2019
  • Oats – 22 August 2019
  • Wheat – 10 September 2019

For spring-sown crops, most results are expected to be published by the end of October.

Results from individual trial sites should not be used to make conclusions on variety performance. The RL is based on information taken from trials across the UK over several seasons – which comprise four years for oilseeds and five years for cereals. These averages provide better information for comparison between varieties. When more results are available, validation procedures will examine cross-site differences further. As more information becomes available from the current harvest, this will contribute to the over-trials averages.
