More about this podcast

There’s been a significant change to the National Variety Trials program. It’s now fully managed by the Grains Research and Development Corporation. You might be thinking… wasn’t it always?
Well while the NVT program was established by GRDC back in 2005 its only in 2018 that the administration and day to day management of the national comparative crop variety trials program has come under GRDC management.

In this podcast NVT’s southern manager Rob Wheeler explains what the change means for NVT and those who use its data for crop management decision making.

The NVT Program

NVT Online provides access to independent results on the performance of recently released grain and field crop varieties. It is a national program of comparative crop variety testing with standardised trial management, data generation, collection and dissemination. This is managed through an internet accessed database that ensures a common approach and uniformity across the system.
