Locally Grown Seed From Established Growers
Mortimers sell a wide range of cereals, oilseed, pulse and herbage seeds including specialist environmental mixtures. Cereal seed is produced in-house, using our new state of the art seed processing facility which was built in 2014 and has been significantly expanded in 2021 to include further cleaning and dressing infrastructure and the addition of a Cimbria optical sorter. The optical sorter is designed to remove all impurities using colour, size and shape to give the purest possible sample.
The new facility processes seed quickly and reliably, allowing Mortimers to increase their annual throughput considerably. Oilseed and herbage seed is supplied by a select number of local providers to ensure a quality product to match the high level of in-house produced seed.
We also offer Farm Saved Seed cleaning, with a full range of chemical seed treatments which is monitored as part of the Bayer Precision Seed treatment scheme.
The majority of our cereal seed is grown locally by well established seed growers and we are continually looking for new seed growers to help meet with increased demand.
We have four licensed seed samplers and three licenced crop inspectors, ensuring quality of production and service from field to bag.
Additionally, since Spring 2017 Mortimers Ltd is a fully-accredited member of the European Seed Treatment Assurance scheme (ESTA), which provides independent assurance that our seed treatment procedures are accurate, efficient and safe.
