Variety Selection

The choice of seed varieties available to growers in the UK is extensive and selection can often be challenging. With varietal performance significantly affected depending on soil type and climate, selecting the right variety for your specific region can reap great rewards.

Using insights from our regional trials and feedback from our national network of agronomists, we are able to supplement the performance data supplied by breeders to offer informed, independent advice on the varieties best suited to your farm’s location and conditions.

Our expert knowledge of the UK market and industry-leading agronomic expertise can help you farm more efficiently and profitably.
