ABSTRACT
The article discusses harvest reports from trial sites and growers in Great Britain which show that hybrid wheat has performed strongly in 2012. The Cambridge Arable Technologies (CAT) second wheat trial yielded about 25 percent more than its conventional counterparts. The growers have reported positive results even from a land that rarely produces high yields, according to CROPCO.
