Cereal Varieties

The vast majority of our seed is contract grown for Harlow Agricultural Merchants Ltd by a very professional group of dedicated seed growers and processed through modern, local seed plants. We see this as very much a partnership that is crucial to the success of our business and enables us to deliver a high quality product back to the farm. We aim to make available a full range of products; we try not to be led by the majority in the quest for sales volume. A brief summary of variety are listed below and further information is available through the download link.
