Forage Maize
Maize for all your needs, tailored to thrive in Britain
All of our “Bred for Britain” maize varieties have been specifically bred for and extensively tested in the UK both in official NIAB trials and in our own large scale farm trials on over 50 locations across England, Scotland and Wales. We trial maize varieties suitable for forage, grain and biogas production both conventionally drilled and under plastic.
