Many farmers first start using Farm Processed Seed because they wish to achieve significant cost savings against the cost of bought-in Certified Seed.

Listed below are typical savings achieved after deduction of all costs, such as grain value, processor charges, royalties where applicable, seed test and farm labour costs.

These savings will vary according to:

Crop type, seed type, variety and whether royalty bearing or not, and supply and demand for a particular variety.
Species Typical Savings/tonne,
Royalty Bearing
Winter Barley/Wheat Feed Varieties £50-£150
Winter Wheat Milling Varieties £60-£150
Winter Oats £70-£150
Triticale/Rye £80-£200
Beans/Peas £100-£200
Oilseed Rape £4000-£6000
Linseed £500-£1000
Spring Cereals £80-£200

If seeds such as spelt or Heritage Varieties are non-royalty bearing a further £50/T saving is possible. Most seed is supplied at a time when cash-flow is critical. By processing your own seed the farmer only has to pay out our processing charge etc and not the cost of the seed. This gives the farmer an improved cash-flow which saves money. Late seed planting can compromise yield.

  1. Farm-processed seed does not leave your farm so you, the farmer, are in control of when it is processed for planting.
  2. We operate three modern Mobile Seed Cleaners built to suit local area needs.
  3. How often do farmers have to delay autumn drilling as their certified seed has not been delivered?. The logistics of such a short turnaround time create immense pressures for the seed trade.
  4. We plan our workloads to process your seed on time.
  1. We offer seed testing prior to processing, discussing your particular needs and objectives.
  2. We have three modern Mobile Seed Cleaners with latest up-to-date cleaning and processing equipment.
  3. We provide choice of latest seed treatments as for Certified Seed.
  4. Our staff are highly trained and experienced staff in understanding your own farm needs.
