Fertiliser

With over 25 years of experience, there’s not much that Woldmarsh doesn't know about buying fertiliser.

Fertiliser Industry Assurance Scheme (FIAS) accredited, with unrivalled industry and geographical knowledge, our fertiliser team prides itself on knowing each Woldmarsh member personally, allowing for strategic supplier recommendations and a highly organised approach to orders and deliveries.

With hands-on experience in the industry and on farms, the fertiliser team is primed to support you with immediate action, most enquiries being dealt with on the same day. From price enquiries, market information, and order/delivery chasers, to handling invoice queries, and placing orders - even just being on-hand for a chat about farming with experts who have lived and breathed farm life.

Strong supplier relationships in this department have been built over years of working within agriculture and co-operative not-for-profit organisations.

Seed

With pricing and availability often fluctuating around peak season, the market for seed can be a rapidly changing one. Knowing how to navigate it effectively to optimise your resources and funds is vital.

Occupying a unique position within the agricultural sector, the Woldmarsh seed department is perfectly positioned to navigate it. With many years of experience in sourcing and supplying a wide range of seed products and services for members, we work closely with both seed merchants and wholesalers to ensure you receive the most competitive pricing.

Bringing this innovative micro-sector of the industry full circle, we also negotiate seed cleaning and dressing terms with a number of companies as well as germination testing for farm-saved seed.

Agrochemical

We understand how essential agrochemicals are for our members. Working with both independent agronomists and Ag-Chem distributors to increase and maintain our knowledge, we are proud to be able to provide a complete package to our members, including early-season ordering, in-season timely delivery, invoicing and rebates.

With an exclusive database of more than 2,000 live negotiated product prices, the agrochemical Woldmarsh team has worked hard to build lasting relationships with manufacturers to bring you the latest information on current products, and an insight into the technologies for the future.

Utilising more than 50 years of combined experience in the field, the team can also offer unparalleled insight into market conditions. With final terms finalised twice a year in July and January, with all rebates/price adjustments being paid back to members, effective communication with both our members and their agronomists ensures industry developments and pricing information can be proactively handled to everyone's benefit.

Animal, Crops & Feed

Working with members and their agronomists, the Woldmarsh Crops and Livestock Department uses 30 years of industry experience to optimise your buying options.

From product choice and price to availability across livestock, crops and feed, to knowing the best time to purchase to cash in on end-of-season price negotiations and volume orders, this team of experts also offers impartial market commentary to further enhance the choice of product available.

Proudly working with numerous suppliers for animal bedding, feed, animal health products and livestock equipment including fencing, gates and more, we are BASIS and FACTS qualified, with excellent contacts at manufacturers, key distributors and independent agronomists, so you get tried and tested product recommendations.
