YEN hub

If you want to improve your yields but you’re not sure what to do differently, the Yield Enhancement Network – or YEN could be for you.

The YEN is an independent network that connects agricultural organisations, farmers, with scientists who are striving to improve crop yields.

Visit the YEN hub at CropTec 2020 and discover how you can benefit from becoming a YEN member, hear about their crop networks, including their new network, YEN Net Zero, hear from last years YEN Competition winners, and find out who wins this year!

The YEN Competition and 2020 Awards

The YEN Competition and 2020 Awards

Every year, we calculate the crop yield potential of each of our members. The members who achieve closest to their potential and the members who achieve the best yield within their network win the YEN competition and are celebrated at the YEN Awards.

This year our YEN Awards are online for the first time and open to non-members. Our 2020 winners will be sharing how they managed to achieve good yields given the very difficult year it has been.

The Awards will be going live at 7pm, 25 November 2020. Click here to register

Crop networks

Crop networks

We have six separate, active networks – Cereal, Oilseed, Grass, Pea, Bean, and Potato.

We also have a dedicated grain nutrition network – YEN Nutrition – and are starting a new network, YEN Zero, to look at addressing farm carbon emissions.
