Locally Grown Seed From Established Growers

Mortimers sell a wide range of cereals, oilseed, pulse and herbage seeds including specialist environmental mixtures.  The majority of cereal seed is produced in-house, using our new state of the art seed processing facility which was built in 2014.

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 James Mortimer 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.

Austral Plus

Austral Plus

Fludioxonil (10g/l) + Tefluthrin (40g/l)

Seed treatment for reducing damage by Wheat Bulb Fly, Wireworm, seed-borne diseases and soil-borne bunt in wheat, barley and oats. Austral Plus is a very useful treatment, particularly where cereals follow fallow, potatoes, sugar beet and vining peas.

Wheat bulb fly control is approximately 80% and good levels of wireworm control can be achieved. Please ensure that the instructions are followed, drilling too deep will reduce the zone of protection and will not protect the seedling up to the soil surface (Be careful when using this dressing, especially filling the drill. Austral Plus has a strong smell and contact with skin may cause irritation). Austral Plus has a single purpose treatment within its formulation.

Austral Plus Fact Sheet
Manganese dressing

Manganese dressing

This can be used on barley, oats, wheat and triticale. Manganese improves plant vigour helping to promote plant establishment, better rooting and disease resistance, especially to mildew in winter. A manganese seed dressing aids crop winter stress tolerance and buffers travelling issues for applying manganese in autumn. Deficiency is common on alkaline soils where a higher pH reduces availability and also lighter soils which are naturally prone to leaching and deficient in micronutrients such as manganese. Growers with these soil types should seriously consider a manganese seed dressing.

Kick Off

Kick Off

Phosphate/Phosphite mix (180g/l), Manganese (80g/l), Potassium (40g/l), Nitrogen (20g/l), Zinc (20g/l), Sulphate (10g/l), Amino Acids

Phosphite based products – e.g. Kick Off/Take Off. A popular seed dressing with a wide range of nutrients to assist in rooting and healthy establishment of strong, vigorous crops. A seed treatment of Kick Off/Take Off can be particularly useful for later sown crops which may be going into colder/wetter seedbeds.Can be used on most crops.

Oilseed Rape

Hy-Pro Duet

Hy-Pro Duet

Prochloraz (150g/l) + Thiram (333g/l)

A fungicide seed treatment which delivers broad spectrum disease control and control of the soil borne 'damping off' complex fungi, resulting in better establishment and seedling health. A key strength of Hy-Pro Duet is the reduction of Phoma infection on the cotyledons and first leaf.

Thiraflo

Thiraflo

The industry standard with contact activity against multiple seed and soil borne fungi including damping off, seedling blight and seed decay.

Kick Off

Kick Off

Phosphate/Phosphite mix (180g/l), Manganese (80g/l), Potassium (40g/l), Nitrogen (20g/l), Zinc (20g/l), Sulphate (10g/l), Amino Acids

Phosphite based treatments – Kick off / Startup etc. These products promote root growth and reduce plant stress, resulting in higher yield potential. The popularity of these seed dressings has greatly increased since the banning of Modesto & Cruiser. With cabbage stem flea beetle (CSFB) now posing a major challenge to the establishment of OSR, these seed dressings can help establish the crop as quickly as possible to increase early vigour and reduce the time the crop is susceptible to any major damage. Can be used on most crops.
