Sustainable Crop Production

Our commitment to sustainability is woven into all of our operations and the work we do with customers, suppliers and partners. At the very heart of it is sustainable crop production; we work with UK farmers to support long term, viable farming systems that increase the longevity of arable businesses, encourage high-quality food production and help our farmed landscape to become more resilient.  


The Responsible ChoiceWe are committed to bring carbon emissions from our own operations to net zero by 2030. Learn more about our approach to sustainability here.

The implementation of a sustainable crop production system often requires a holistic approach to overall farm management - what works on one farm may not always be right for another.

So that we can effectively support farmers who are looking to adopt new practices or explore alternative crop production strategies, we have created a sustainability model that covers seven focus areas

While each area is important in its own right, exploring the ways they link in with one another can help you to take a considered, whole-farm approach that works for you and your sustainability objectives.

Improve your farm's carbon capture to benefit both the environment and your commercial activities

Commitments to reducing emissions and improving natural carbon resources are high on the agenda. Our specialist team can help you benchmark the soil carbon levels on your farm, provide data for carbon auditing and help you quantify the soil carbon stored/ha. Farm-scale trials analysis carried out at our Peterborough Soil Life demonstration site also contributes to future soil management strategies.
