The article focuses on the results of the oilseed rape (OSR) trials conducted by Great Britain's Home Grown Cereals Authority (HGCA). The overall average yield of the varieties of OSR that have been tested has increased despite the dry spring and plenty of disease. It notes that dry weather during flowering, which delayed nitrogen uptake in many areas, might have been expected to count against later flowering varieties like Es Astrid and Expert.
