National champions of niche cropping, Premium Crops are the UK’s largest specialist arable seed merchants. We supply seed, purchase contracts, and provide a range of agronomical and logistical services.
Premium Crops can be located at stand number 302.
Cefetra Ltd, Premium Crops parent company, will be on the adjacent stand (stand no.304) and will be pleased to see existing and potential customers to discuss grain marketing strategies and contract offerings. The volatility of the grain markets and the changes in consumer demands mean that it is now more important than ever to be working closely with a strong grain marketing business. We have national coverage with a local presence in offices covering all regions and as well as strong partnerships with most domestic consumers, we also export significant volumes, in partnership with our sister companies across Europe.

Cover crops have seen immense success as a sustainable and holistic means to increasing crop performance and soil health, and continue to rise in popularity amongst farmers seeking fewer chemical solutions.
