Five of the UK’s leading Agri businesses have officially announced the formation of a new and dynamic strategic seed technology group, known as “Alliance” which will provide strong and
lasting benefits for UK agriculture.
JE & VM Dalton Ltd, H. L. Hutchinson Ltd, Pearce Seeds LLP, Woodheads Seeds Ltd and Wynnstay Group PLC, all significant, well respected influential companies in their own right, will continue to operate independently in their normal day to day businesses whilst forming a new seed technology grouping that will provide an unrivalled hub of technical knowledge and expertise, both locally and internationally. They will provide connection to areas of plant breeding and innovation, seed multiplication, production and supply as well as variety trials backed up by some of Europe’s leading agronomy specialists.
ALLIANCE will deliver invaluable independent information and services throughout the industry, focusing primarily on new breeding and crop protection technologies within wheat, barley, OSR, maize and forage crops. Growers will be able to access and share in these new collaboration areas . New variety traits and CP innovation will bring greater agronomic and environmental benefits and will be driven by real consumer and market demand in areas such as fuel, food and the drinks markets.
The members of ALLIANCE are well known to each other having already worked together successfully in various areas and projects. The individual companies are all committed to working together for the benefit of UK agriculture in a transparent, efficient, and progressive way.
The forming of ALLIANCE will enhance what has already been achieved and delivered by the individual companies on behalf of the UK agricultural supply chain and provide real choice and improved technical and commercial opportunities for UK Farmers and Growers.
