Sustainable Crop Production


Responsible Choice Production Roundel
We work with UK farmers to support long-term, viable farming systems that increase the longevity of farming businesses, encourage high-quality crop production and help our farmed environment to become more resilient.

This holistic approach that balances food production and the need to maintain and increase natural capital is sustainable crop production.



Helping you navigate funding for sustainable farming

Going forward, there will be opportunities to access both public and private funding for environmental actions and sustainable farming practices due to the shift in support that is increasingly becoming available.

Frontier is uniquely placed in the industry to link growers to these opportunities, working closely with policy makers and helping to faciliate landscape and farm scale supply chain projects that financially reward farmers for implementing more sustainable farming methods.

Unsure of the best approach when it comes to accessing funding for environmental actions on your farm?

Help with product selection, genetic and biological solutions and complete nutrition programmes

Access to the latest variety insights and recommendations based on evidence and extensive research through our trials netowkr. As well as supporting you with product choice, our qualified advisors will help you compile bespoke nutrition programmes to suit your circumstances too, ensuring any actives or ingredients comply with new regulations and the sustainability goals of your business.

Soil health and function

Helping you to get a greater understanding of your soils with our range of soil analyses

All of our advisors are specialists in soil health and management, ensuring your farm's greatest asset is adequately managed to support long-term food production but also well cared for as a valuable natural capital asset of it's own. Our technical advisors can support you with a range of soil reporting and management packages that are underpinned by advice and recommendations from our soil and plant health experts. A network of farm-based research trials within our 3D Thinking programme also mean we can share scientically-proven management techniques, while services such as precision soil sampling and the provision of specialist environmental crops can help you truly understand what's going on within your fields.

Water quality and management

water quality

Support to help you manage and protect water quality on your farm

Water is a valuable natural capital asset and its quality and overall protection are intrinsic to agriculture. It is key to good soil health and structure which are vital for infiltration, flood prevention and sustainable farming systems, with legilsation in place to outline best practice considerations where water and agriculture intercept. Our teams can support you with the appropriate management of water on farm, ensuring this valuable resource is protected in line with regulations such as the Water Framework Directive and crop protection stewardship guidelines. More about how we can support you with water management on farm can be found here.  


Biodiversity and environmental management

Manage your farm's natural capital through agri-environment and privately funded schemes to support your crop production objectives

Our specialist crops division, Kings Crops, provides a range of services including industry leading seed supply, the preparation and submission of scheme agreements, crop protection and nutrition advice, support with soil management, Environmental Impact Assessments, conservation and sporting expertise and the provision of environmental mapping and recording tools.

Energy and carbon management

Working with you to understand and manage farm emissions

Given that agriculture is land-based, there is the ability to both reduce emissions and sequester them. Our specialists work with farm businesses to help them better understand their Scope 1 and 2 emissions, while our direct relationships with food processers and retailers mean we can support the wider supply chain to manage Scope 3 emissions in the long term. Key to this work is data capture and interpretation, but we understand that there are nuances for calculating carbon footprints and GHG emissions. With a lot of crop production data captured on farm already, we're working to support farms and supply chains with the requirements of reporting to meet future sustainability goals.
