The article presents comments from various individuals on the Home Grown Cereals Authority's (HGCA) Recommended Lists (RL) for cereals and oilseeds in Great Britain. Independent variety adviser Richard Fenwick believes that the lists contained so much information and that some growers want more simplistic tables. Meanwhile, grower John Barrett of Sentry in Norfolk, England thinks that HGCA should focus on disease resistance ratings and lodging potential.
