The trials include the current commercial HEAR varieties along with new candidates submitted by various different plant breeders around the world; all HEAR varieties are then compared side-by -side with the UK National List control ‘00’ varieties for a direct comparison of yield, agronomic characters and quality.

Each year, the data collected is added to our database and used to create the PCL Descriptive List of HEAR Varieties
