Yield Enhancement Network

AHDB supports the ADAS Yield Enhancement Network (YEN) initiative.

The Yield Enhancement Network (YEN) was set up by ADAS in 2012 and is now a well-known, collaborative industry initiative. The YEN is supported entirely by corporate sponsorship, subscriptions and self-help.

It is open to all organisations, agronomists, farmers and researchers. The principal aims of the YEN are to identify and support arable innovators, thus to drive understanding of yield determination and inspire initiatives for yield improvement across the industry.

Through AHDB and other research sponsors, the YEN is increasingly providing a platform for effective communication and synergy between farms, industry and academia.
