MasterSeeds

MasterSeeds

Over the past 40 years the Master Seeds brand has set the benchmark for seed quality in the UK.

  • Tested more rigorously than both C1 and C2 Higher Voluntary Standard seed
  • Processed exclusively in Agrii facilities
  • Fully traceable and quality control is rigorous
  • Utilises the best available treatments as standard
  • Exemplary in its delivery record nationwide
  • Supported by regional and local R&D and full agronomy backup

Seed On Time

Confidence in the delivery of seed to farm is crucial to fit in with farm workloads. Seed companies are often judged on their ability to deliver in the heat of the drilling season.

Agrii has a proven track record for delivery over many years and runs state-of-the-art distribution networks.

Cereals are distributed from the four regional sites direct to farm. Most deliveries are made using dedicated hauliers. Approved pallet-shippers are sometimes used for urgent deliveries or to more remote areas like the West coast of Scotland.

Small seeds including Oilseed Rape, Master Leys and Cover Crops are delivered via the UK’s largest agrochemical distribution hub based in Cambridgeshire.

Agrii aims for very high standards:

  • Next day delivery to farm for orders Saturday deliveries are standard from May through to the end of September
  • Most deliveries are made in Agrii vans with local knowledge of individual farms and farm stores

Technical Backup

There is a large dedicated team supporting Agrii’s seed business.

Order processing, planting and tracking systems are constantly being improved to give confidence to growers that seed will be delivered in line with the Master Seeds standards.

Agrii employs over 280 agronomists and technical support staff to provide customer support where necessary. It offers buy-backs and grain marketing opportunities through its collaboration with Glencore Grain UK Ltd in England and Scotgrain in Scotland.

Agrii’s agronomists gain an additional insight into variety performance based on extensive R&D trials.
