Master Seeds RESERVED seed is held back from the previous harvest for growers who require early seed supply for the following year.
It is cleaned, then germination tested and treated in June/July and delivered immediately. It has all of the usual Master Seeds benefits, but with the peace of mind of being able to reserve your priority seed, ready and tailored as you need it, to meet your early drilling requirements.
Securing your seed supply with RESERVED seed means that it will arrive on farm, in advance, at a convenient time for you -avoiding logistical problems at the time of drilling.

Controls the seed and soil borne diseases of winter and spring wheat. It is based on a fludioxonil and has low dust and excellent flowability through the drill.
- Redigo Pro
Controls the seed and soil borne diseases of wheat and spring barley, oats, rye and triticale – it’s the latest formulation from Bayer CropScience to improve, handling, reduce dust and further improve loose smut and Fusarium control. It is based on a combination of prothioconazole and tebuconazole.
- Rancona iMixThe preferred base treatment for spring barley based on a combination of ipconazole and imazalil. It control loose smut, leaf stripe and seedling blight dieases. Agrii trials also show that it control seed-borne net blotch. It is also used with Vibrance Duo on barley to boost activity against loose smut and leaf stripe.

The Master Leys range of grass mixtures offers full and comprehensive options for all types of farming systems and regions of the UK.
Working in close coordination with leading grass seed breeders throughout the UK and Europe, Agrii are able to access the best varieties to formulate the Master Leys portfolio. In addition to this, Agrii grows and produces over 80% of the grass seed used to produce Master Leys . This enables us to have a greater control over the quality of the seed we use and ensures that what goes into a Master Leys bag is of the highest possible standard.
To help reduce reliance on bought-in winter feed, we also offer a wide range of root seeds, which will help provide additional home grown winter forage.
By visiting trial sites and working closely with breeders, it means we are able to choose and offer the best varieties across all species of roots. Not only can we offer the best varieties, we can also offer advice on establishment techniques, nutrition for the crop and agrochemical inputs, to help you achieve maximum forage output.
Along with this, we can also offer advice on feeding the crop to help reduce wastage and to make sure the crop that you have grown is utilised to its full potential.

The key element in improving soil health and productivity in the long term, is to increase your soil organic matter content. This is best done by selecting the correct cover crops for your farming operation. Please get in touch for details of the varieties that we have available, or for a copy of our
cover crops guide.
