HGCA Recommended Lists (RL) provide information on yield and quality performance, agronomic features and market options for recommended varieties to assist growers with variety selection. Here you can find the latest Recommended Lists for wheat, oilseed, barley and oats as well as harvest results and trials information.
This season’s difficult weather conditions have brought short-term issues of seed quality and availability into sharp focus for many growers. The problems experienced this year have prompted a number of questions from growers about the regulatory position on seed use and supply.
In response, BSPB and AIC have joined forces to produce a user-friendly guide to the most frequently asked questions on the use of certified and farm-saved seed.

Each year HGCA invests around 13% of its total levy income to assessing varieties for the HGCA Recommended Lists.
HGCA Recommended Lists are run through a collaborative project in partnership with BSPB, nabim and MAGB.
The HGCA Recommended lists are managed by dedicated members of the HGCA Research and Knowledge Transfer team.
Organisations from across the whole industry are involved in producing the HGCA Recommended Lists.
Acknowledgement is also made of the contribution of DEFRA and plant breeders through their payments for National List trials and tests, and to BSPB members for significant additional data made available from their co-ordinated trial series.
HGCA is grateful to all organisations involved for their support and co-operation.
