Recommended Grass and Clover Lists for England and Wales

The England and Wales Recommended Grass and Clover Lists (RGCL) are drawn up after rigorous testing for attributes such as yield, persistency, quality and disease resistance. The data comes from trials carried out by the NIAB-TAG, IBERS, DLF Trifolium, DSV, Barenbrug, AFBI and SRUC.

There are three key steps to using this list:

  1. What is the purpose of the new ley? Select either the grazing or silage tab at the top of the table
  2. What characteristics are you looking for? Use the filters and sort functions to narrow the range of varieties
  3. Compare and print the varieties you have selected using the 'Compare' function

Lists last updated 27 April 2015

  • * - Rating from 1 to 9 where 9 = good
  • Tetraploid (H) - H=hybrid
  • [number] - limited data
  • Note that the mean of G varieties include all those from early, intermediate and late heading groups.
  • Yields are expressed as a percentage of the mean of all fully recommended PRG varieties in trials. Grazing yields are measured in year 2, Silage yields in years 1 and 3.
  • Grazing D-value is measured from a late-summer cut in year 2.
  • Silage D-value is measured from both the 1st and 2nd Cuts in year 1.

The Recommended Grass and Clover List for England and Wales testing programme is funded by plant breeders through the British Society of Plant Breeders and the ruminant levy boards - the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board operating through EBLEX and AHDB Dairy, and Hybu Cig Cymru (HCC/Meat Promotion Wales).
