United Oilseeds has a 25% share of the UK oilseed rape seed market. Our extensive seed portfolio means that we have the right variety to meet the specific needs of each individual grower no matter where you farm or what your soil type is.
Offering a tailor made seed portfolio
There is a wide choice of OSR seed varities detailed on the AHDB's Recommended List, as well as many other non-recommended varieties. With so many varieties available, making the correct seed choice can often be rather challenging.
Our aim at United Oilseeds is to tailor the correct variety selection to maximise yield and performance potential on your farm.
Whether spring or winter drilled, hybrid, conventional or semi-dwarf, it is essential to give careful consideration to each variety's agronomic characteristics and to match these to your soil and climatic conditions.
Our experience and independence ensures, as your local farming co-operative, that you receive the best advice on varietal selection and seed treatments. And with a range of pricing and payment terms to suit your individual needs, we are sure to have the right cropping options for your enterprise.

Due to our extensive expertise and success, United Oilseeds enjoys close working relationships with all the major plant breeders. Our large trading volume ensures that our members have access to the best varieties at the most competitive prices.
