The GRDC’s National Variety Trial (NVT) program evaluates approximately 2000 released and near- released varieties across the nation each year. 
The data is collated and displayed on NVT’s website, creating a valuable and constantly evolving resource for grain growers. 
This podcast focuses on accessing and using the wealth of information on the NVT website to make informed variety selection decisions. 
Manager NVT Systems, Neale Sutton says the site makes it easy for growers to connect with crop trial results specific to their location and unique environment.
