THE latest independent varietal information from the GRDC National Variety Trials have been released and growers and advisers can now access trial results.

Harvest Reports from the 2020 season have been released and contain up-to-date disease ratings, grain quality results and yield rankings from the 650 NVT sites across Australia.

Southern reports cover SA's Eyre Peninsula; Mid North, Yorke Peninsula, Mallee and Lower and Upper South-East and are ready to be viewed.

GRDC NVT senior manager Sean Coffey said the 16 reports covering the western, southern and northern growing regions hold a vast amount of information at a very detailed level.

"We consider the Harvest Reports to be one of the most important channels of providing varietal data to the public.

"Covering the entire NVT network of trials, the reports are designed to complement the GRDC-supported state-based Sowing Guides, which are published prior to harvest.

Northern cropping region reports are also available for Central New South Wales; Northern NSW; Southern NSW; Central Queensland; and Southern Queensland and Victoria; Western Victoria and Tasmania; Northern Victoria; and Wimmera Victoria.

"The breadth of the NVT network means the Harvest Reports provide important variety information to growers and advisers right across the country," Mr Coffey said.

The Harvest Reports are available from the new-look NVT website which has recently been updated to improve usability.

"The NVT program was established in 2005 and has evolved over that time," Mr Coffey said.

"We wanted to make sure the new site reflected the information which is most important to growers and advisers."

Besides accessing the Harvest Reports, website users can also view trial data from their region via a clickable map and access important tools such as the Long Term Yield Reporter and NVT Disease Ratings.
