The Gilbert-Varshamov bound guarantees the existence of families of codes over the finite field Fℓ with good asymptotic parameters. We show that this bound can be improved for all nonprime fields Fℓ with ℓ ≥ 49 , except possibly ℓ = 125. We observe that the same improvement even holds within the class of transitive codes and within the class of self-orthogonal codes.
