Tynegrain Agronomy offers farmers the opportunity to separate agrochemical buying from agronomy advice.

This allows Tynegrain agronomist Nick Sanderson to source from the agrochemical market to select the correct product at the most competitive price.

Nick is totally independent from the agrochemical trade, achieving substantial savings on agrochemicals for farmers at a level that individual farmers would find hard to match.

Nick is totally committed to achieving the highest yields for his clients' crops at the lowest costs. This is achieved by regular field walking on a weekly basis during the growing season, followed up with computerised field reports outlining his recommendations. Agrochemicals are then delivered direct from the supply trade at group discount prices.

Tailored information and advice for your area.

GrainCo Ltd has developed crop demonstration sites across the North of England and Scotland which play an important role in demonstrating the benefits of different crop varieties, seed rates, seed treatments and agronomy.

The large numbers of our farmer clients who regularly turnout for our scheduled meetings prove that they are an excellent way of discussing current products and techniques. Large plots drilled with a farm scale drill give our farmers a good indication on the effects of different products on increasing yields and maximising crop performance.
