INDEPENDENT AGRONOMY

Crop Management Partners is the largest Independent Agronomy Partnership operating in Southern England.
We have 10 BASIS, FACTS and BETA qualified Independent agronomists, with over 200 years of combined experience.
Our sole aim is to work in the best interest of our  clients. This enables them to separate the technical issues of growing crops, from buying decisions.
Our Independent advice is supported, by Agritek, one of the UK’s most competitive agro-Chemical, Seed and Fertiliser agencies.




CROP ROTATION

One of the most critical challenges growers face is planning the farms rotation.
At the Crop Management Partners our agronomists work with you to establish a financially secure and robust cropping plan.
With many years of experience on our side we are able to present a range of options to help combat the rising costs of weed, disease, pest control and resistance development.

 

 

 

DIGITAL MAPPING

A good set of clear and concise maps are an essential management tool for any agricultural business.
Using Gatekeeper mapping software we are able to produce professional and acurate maps for various applications ranging from basic farm maps to NVZ manure risk spreading maps.

 

 

ENVIRONMENTAL SCHEMES

Practical Environmental Advice with YOUR CROPS In Mind!
ELS Applications & Renewals – Completed by BASIS, FACTS & ICM qualified advisors. We have the knowledge and expertise to place the most cost effective option in the right place without compromising crop performance. Please be aware that to ensure continuity of payments, ELS renewals should be submitted at least 2 months before the expiry date of your existing ELS scheme.
Higher Level Stewardship (HLS) & Farm Environment Plans (FEP’s) – completed by a Chartered Environmentalist who has successfully submitted over 17,000 acres into the scheme and produced FEP’s on well over 20,000 acres.


NUTRIENT PLANNING

Nutrient planning is key in optimizing the yield potential of your crops. Also, with nearly 70% of the countries farmland in Nitrate Vulnerable Zones (NVZ’s), not following correct nutrient planning procedures can lead to serious deductions from your Single Farm Payment cheque.
Experienced agronomists at Crop Management Partners will work with you to plan your fertiliser inputs in a way that suits you – whether that be PLANET, Gatekeeper or just a simple spreadsheet. Crop Management Agronomists have the knowledge and expertise to assist you in producing a plan that both maximises yield and minimises the risk of non-compliance.
With our digital mapping software we can also create professional manure risk maps which are one of the required standards of the NVZ regulations.
For those clients who wish to take things one step further we can also guide you through the maize of the precision farming products related to the variable application of various nutrients and lime.



AG CHEM AND FERT SUPPLY

Agritek is an Independent agency for supplies of agrochemicals, fertiliser and seed. Our sole aim is to make your business more profitable. On average, our clients save between 5 and 20% on purchases.
We are independent of all suppliers and act solely on behalf of our clients. The service we offer is completely transparent, which means you can be sure you are buying inputs competitively.
We have an established and trusting relationship with all suppliers and they offer our clients an outstanding service.
We do not take a margin on any products, which means we are able to secure some of the best terms available in the country.
We don’t sell any products. We don’t earn anything from what our clients use or buy – we earn no commission. We are not tied to any manufacturer or supplier.
With an independent agronomist you are free to buy from wherever you choose – getting the right products at the right price. We charge a small fee for this service.


ARABLE BUDGETING

High levels of volatility in the commodity markets and rising input costs mean that knowing your costs and predicting seasonal cashflows have never been more important.
Working closely with clients, we are able to create customised crop margin analysis and budgets to help minimise financial risks and maximise returns.


FIELD RECORDING

Accurate field records are essential to meet the requirements of Cross Compliance, NVZ and Farm Assurance schemes.
Comprehensive field records are also an important tool to maximise the financial performance of your business.
Cropping plans, yields, gross margins, pesticide usage, N Max calculations and fertiliser records can all be produced using either Muddy Boots or Gatekeeper software package

    I have been a client of Crop Management Partners for 20 years. I find the unbiased advice a valuable asset to my farming business. In addition to the advice I am able to purchase inputs through Agritek Ltd at competitive prices. I have also used them to help prepare successful ELS and HLS applications.

    The thing that sets Crop Management apart from other agronomy companies is the holistic approach they take to my arable farming business. Not only do they give excellent independent advice on agrochemicals they also give advice in terms of cropping rotation, variety selection, crop nutrition, precision farming and methods of establishment.
  • Robert Shove who farms 1600 acres in North Kent

    Robert Shove who farms 1600 acres in North Kent

    Farming nearly 1600 acres of combineable crops in North Kent, spread over 30 miles, with only 1 full time employee is a challenging task, particularly after an autumn like 2012. I have used Roger Bryan of Crop Management Partners as part of my team for over 20 years. I value the technical knowledge and experience he brings to my business as a total agronomy package independent of product sales.

    Crop Management Partners provide me with a professional, well-informed, unbiased and competitive package in terms of crop pesticide and nutrition management for both arable and forage enterprises. Additional support is available for cross-compliance issues including NVZ’s, soil management and environmental schemes. Profitability is the key driver when advice is given and is sensitive to both soil capabilities and any environmental constraints. In addition, the buying arm, Agritek, provide a well-run and cost effective buying group that covers all purchases. Given the continued rise in our crop yields and margins I am only too happy to endorse the working relationship I have with Crop Management Partners.
