Tailored programmes to meet the precise needs of individual farmers

Individual farms differ wildly from each other and have to be approached in ways that take into account matters such as location, climate, soil type and cropping patterns. Our members recognise this and work alongside farmers to build up local knowledge and gain a thorough understanding of every factor that needs to be included in any programme of activity.

Crops covered by Crest members include spring and winter cereals, oil seed rape, potatoes, maize, grassland and vegetables

Details of all current recommended Cereal crops and OSR crops can be found by following this link to the HGCA site
