We are thrilled to announce that a company whom we and many Woldmarsh members have found to be a staple when it comes to market views and opinions have recently partnered with Woldmarsh. CRM Agri are UK leaders in this field, and it is a privilege to be able to offer their services to our members.
With the ever-increasing pressures facing the agricultural industry at this time, the mental side of farming is becoming increasingly critical particularly following the challenges which faced Winter drilling this season. Market insights and strategies is an area we would like our members to have the opportunity to be at the forefront of to ensure the absolute potential of their crops year in, year out and this partnership is a fantastic step in that direction.
Below is a brief introduction from James, CEO of CRM Agri discussing his take on grain marketing and the options available for members moving forward.
‘Grain marketing is often sidelined within farming businesses and focus is placed on achieving the highest yield, the industry has become one of the best in the world at managing yield risk with an average 7% variation in wheat yield year to year. Yearly wheat price variation has been 42% on average of the past 10 years and our members have realised how investing in managing this can positively impact their bottom lines.
CRM agri was founded when a group of Cambridgeshire farmers wanted a more tailored independent marketing approach, since then the high national growth in membership has shown us the demand for these services and we are delighted to offer them to Woldmarsh members through this partnership and having already worked with Woldmarsh members over the past 6 years.
We will be offering access to our new Graintab platform as well as the option to use our bespoke marketing services. We will also be looking to run Woldmarsh member events and grain marketing training courses through our academy programme (https://graintab.com/courses/)’
Below is a brief summary about Graintab and instructions on how to start your free trial.

‘Farmers don’t have time to analyse what is happening all over the world, which makes the strategy CRM Agri give invaluable to us’ – Christopher Heneage, Heneage Farms
“I don’t really have much time to be in the office, so knowing that someone is watching markets and constantly analysing the situation takes some of the pressure away. A phone call from my advisor to say yes, now’s a good time to sell another 15%, means I can focus on other tasks knowing that side of things is taken care of.’’ – Dan Wormell, PR Wormell Farms
