Organic Seed

We conduct fully replicated organic trials in both Winter and Spring cereal crops to assess the species and varieties best suited to any organic situation: both agronomically and commercially.

We offer an extensive, but carefully chosen portfolio of organic combinable crop species and varieties for our customers. Consideration of regional suitability, rotation, market outlets are just some of the areas we address before deciding which organic varieties we multiply for the following year to supply our customers.

We have been carrying out trial work organically for over 5 years but mainly in the spring position but as of 2017 we conducted winter trials to address the autumn planting as well. We had in our 2017 organic trials 22 winter wheats to assess plus winter oats and winter barley to aid further consideration of varieties that would suit an autumn sowing requirement. The spring trials were also very successful with planting of over 30 varieties, across different species as well as whole crop mixes and protein sources.

The yield data from our fully replicated cereal plots were analysed to help build a better picture on variety potential within the organic sector. Our yield data is supported by disease scoring of the varieties taken through the trial assessment.

Our 2018 harvest trials are now under way. For those varieties that were of specific interest from our 2017 trial, we have entered field scale trials with farmers in the area to further evaluate them in a farm situation. We work closely with UK breeders to identify future varieties that may be of interest organically. For trial results please contact our office.
