Abstract

economic and market requirements and respond to commitments on climate change mitigation, soil and water quality improvement and biodiversity conservation. EU Directives that require testing for value for cultivation and use (VCU) as part of National Listing (NL) are primarily led by market drivers.
New varieties are normally defined according to market values such as yield and grain quality, but they could also be rated in terms of their environmental or social value such as the reduction of fungicide, herbicide, fertiliser or energy use.
Thus, the testing of new varieties could demonstrate financial benefits as well as contributions to wider climatic, social and agri-environmental drivers.
