2012 MGA Variety choice tables

Friday, December 23, 2011

Variety data is this year presented in a Favourable and non Favourable site list.  Data is generated from the independent NIAB trials programme supported by the British Society of Plant Breeders and the MGA.  Only first choice varieties are listed in the MGA tables.

 After much deliberation and member feedback, the MGA have decided to continue listing varieties according to maturity.  While we appreciate this approach may be at odds with some in the industry, it is believed that members will benefit from clear guidance as to the division of the list to make the tables useful on their own farms.  

We have called these divisions “MGA Groups” to avoid any confusion with historic listings.

 The division of the full list into MGA groups is based on both the statistical analysis of the data and the meaningful difference in expected maturity of varieties.  We have worked on a 5 day difference in maturity between each MGA group.

Both lists are colour coded to illustrate the different MGA groups.  You can find the lists in the Agronomy section of the website.
