New arable focus in the east for Timac Agro UK

Timac Agro UK has launched its dedicated arable division to support growers in the east.

Headed up by newly appointed David Harrod as arable business director, who has over four decades of experience in the crop nutrition industry, the team of local technical sales specialists will be supporting growers in improving soil health and crop yields.

“UK agriculture is going through a challenging period of change; from increasing costs to changes in legislation,” says Mr Harrod. “But with change comes opportunity, which the Timac Agro UK team and I are here to support growers embrace.”

Thanks to its expertise in soil and plant nutrition, coupled with the local knowledge of the team, Timac Agro UK arable will bring concrete solutions to eastern farm businesses.

“The farming agenda is to develop arable enterprises to farm in a more sustainable way, putting healthy soils at the centre of crop nutrition decisions,” notes Mr Harrod. “Timac Agro UK has an established relationship working with growers to improve grassland and forage crops – we’re now turning our focus to the arable portfolio with a new arable team.”

As crop protection products continue to be phased out, Mr Harrod says industry needs to help growers in making cropping choices that will deliver reliably year after year.

“Through our arable service, we can showcase the portfolio of innovative products and the technical support we can offer growers as they transition through changes to BPS, SFI and ELMs, while navigating rising costs.”

James Hay, Timac Agro UK deputy general manager says this is an exciting time for Timac Agro UK.

“Timac Agro UK has had a presence in the UK market for over 40 years, and we want to be a part of the transition British agriculture is making. Expanding our arable division will enable us to do so.

“We’re delighted to have a dedicated team in the east, who are bringing their extensive crop nutrition expertise, industry network and local knowledge of soil health to support eastern farmers.”
