Welcome to Field Options
Set up in 2004, Field Options market a comprehensive range of grass, forage seeds and other products associated with increasing the production and utilisation efficiency of crops grown on farms throughout the UK. With an outlook of uncertainty in farm commodity prices, growing and utilising more grass and forage is key to the profitability of all ruminant livestock enterprises. We endeavour to select high performance products, aiming to produce crops with the potential to increase efficiency and lower production costs for farmers.
“More efficient grass and forage production is the great opportunity for dairy, beef, sheep and goat farming"
We market a comprehensive range of seeds and associated products, primarily for use by livestock farmers. This includes grass mixtures, maize, fodder beet, wholecrop mixtures and forage crops as well as seeds for environmental schemes, green manures, game cover, lawns and sports turf. We are also involved in specialist fertilisers and ensiling technology, silage inoculants, clamp covers and silage sheets. We can organise the sampling, analysis and interpretation of soils and forages as well as testing for the purity and germination of seed.
The products listed in our Grass and Forage Seeds Guide can be ordered through our main office in Presteigne or through distributors at locations throughout England, Scotland and Wales. Products are delivered direct to farm from contracted production centres or from our warehouse. Our most popular mixtures are kept in stock for immediate delivery. Some mixtures are blended to order. Standard service is three days, next day service is available collection is also an option.
Advice and Technical Support
We supply farmers throughout the United Kingdom with seeds in combination with agronomic and, where necessary, forage planning advice. We can be contacted for technical advice by phone, email or through farm visits. We have detailed grower’s guidelines and costs for many crops. These are designed help farmers make informed decisions, provide an insight into the management of each crop and identify whether a crop is suited to a particular field or management system. Many of our distributors are also BASIS and FACTS qualified agronomists who can advise on and supply a comprehensive range of agrochemicals, where required.
