Set up in 2004, we are a specialist seed business supplying seeds, associated products and technical support throughout the UK. We focus primarily on grass and forage, plus seed for environmental schemes and cover crops. With continuing market pressures on farming, growing and utilising more grass and forage is key to the profitability of all ruminant livestock enterprises. We use trials to select high performance varieties and mixtures, aiming to produce crops with the potential to increase efficiency and lower production costs for farmers. Field Options is a division of the ProCam group of companies.
'More efficient grass and forage production is the great opportunity for UK dairy, beef and sheep farming.'
Field Options - What We Can Do for Our Clients
We market a comprehensive range of seeds and associated products, primarily for use by livestock farmers. This includes grass mixtures, maize, fodder beet, wholecrop mixtures and forage crops as well as seeds for environmental schemes, cover crops, game cover, lawns and sports turf. We are involved in specialist fertilisers and ensiling technology, silage inoculants, clamp covers and silage sheets. We can also organise the sampling, analysis and interpretation of soils and forages, as well as testing for the purity and germination of seed. Many of our staff and distributors are also BASIS and FACTS qualified agronomists who can advise on and supply a comprehensive range of agrochemicals, where required.
The products listed in our Grass and Forage Seeds Guide can be ordered through our network of Field Options and ProCam agronomists and through distributors at locations throughout England, Scotland and Wales. Products are delivered direct to farm from contracted production centres or from our own depots. Our most popular products are kept in stock for immediate delivery, while some mixtures are blended to order. Standard delivery is three days but next day service is available.
Advice and Technical Support
We supply farmers throughout the United Kingdom with seeds in combination with agronomic and, where necessary, forage planning advice. We can be contacted for technical advice by phone, email or through farm visits. We have detailed grower’s guidelines and costs for many crops. These are designed to help farmers make informed decisions, provide an insight into the management of each crop and identify whether a crop is suited to a particular field or management system.
