In time for harvest 2020, ADAS has launched a new YEN initiative called YEN Nutrition – to support those seeking to improve the nutrition of arable crops.

YEN Nutrition provides comprehensive grain analysis on all 12 essential crop nutrients and allows participants to benchmark their crops’ nutritional performance against other growers.

When used in conjunction with soil and leaf analysis, YEN Nutrition will reveal the final status of the crop, and empower growers to make the right nutritional choices to enhance their future crop yields, field by field.

Membership is open to anyone from the UK or abroad for any grain crop - cereals, oilseeds, or pulses.

Membership of YEN Nutrition provides:
  • A grain sampling kit with instructions, a poster, labels, sample list, sample bags and an addressed pre-paid postage bag.
  • Analysis of six (or more) grain samples for all 12 nutrients
  • Three reports:
    • Nutrient Offtake Report - shortly after samples and crop yields are received.
    • Nutrient Benchmarking Report - October or November 2020.
    • Annual YEN Nutrition Review - February 2021.
