Yield Enhancement Network

YEN Banner

AHDB supports the ADAS Yield Enhancement Network (YEN) initiative.

The YEN brings together farmers and agricultural organisations to identify ways to improve yields. The ambition is to close the gap between on-farm yields and genetic potential yields.

Within the Cereal YEN and the Oilseed YEN, members can compare the advantages and disadvantages of different management options. This is done through an annual competition to achieve the highest proportion of yield potential, and overall yield produced.

Each year, many AHDB Monitor Farms and Arable Business Groups participate in YEN. They are encouraged to calculate the cost of production and gross margins, using AHDB’s Farmbench, for their YEN competition entries.
