Conventional Seeds

Our customers work with us because we supply a wide range of carefully selected combinable crop species and varieties which have been bred by world-leading plant scientists and extensively field-tested. We only multiply seed varieties with careful consideration for regional suitability, rotation, market outlets, perceived shortfalls and supply, meaning our customers have the most advanced, vigorous and marketable product available.

Due to our strong relationships with UK and European plant breeders, we have access to leading established varieties but also new variety releases which can be issued on semi-exclusive, or even exclusive arrangements. To date, we have successfully commercialised a number of varieties including Atego, Rozmar and Vok Spring Oats, Sokrates, Magister and Nelson Winter Wheat, Amaretto Spring Wheat, Armada & Evelina Spring Barley and Securo and Somtri Triticale and we are continually trialling new material each year in both AHDB Recommended List and independent trials.

Conventional Oats

Naked Oats

Patrik

Patrik spring naked oat is an interesting newcomer to the sector of ‘Naked Oats’. The grain of naked oats threshes free from the husk. Although naked oat varieties produce less yield than the conventional husked types, the naked grain has considerable nutritional benefits. They produce higher oil and nutrient content. To avoid quality loss (eg: Rancidity), naked oats must be dried immediately after harvest to at least 14% moisture content. For longer term storage a moisture level of 12% is required.

Patrik Naked Oat are extremely competitive and have a growth habit that would suit low intensity farming. Naked Oats are highly sought after by the pig, poultry and horse feed industry.

Seed will be available for Spring, but orders must be placed early to avoid disappointment as supply is limited.

Conventional Triticale

Spring Triticale

Conventional Spring Triticale

Triticale is becoming more popular with growers across the country due to a number of reasons. One being an increased usage of triticale in the Anaerobic Digestate market.

Crossed between Wheat and Rye, Triticale is typically long strawed and suited to drought tolerant land where the deeper rooting system can tap into available nutrients and moisture further down into the soil.

Triticale performs best financially when in the 2nd or 3rd wheat slot as it is fairly inexpensive to grow and is less affective to take all.

Triticale can also be useful for fields close to woodlands as Rabbits will not eat the seed.

We have a number of new Spring triticales in trial and look forward to bringing these new and exciting varieties to the market. Look out for further information on these varieties from Harvest 2019.

Somtri

Somtri Spring triticale is an established German triticale which has been grown conventionally and organically in the UK for over 10 years. It has long straw but excellent resistance to lodging. Because of its enormous root development, Somtri spring triticale may tap nutrients and water from deeper soil layers, making it a very tolerant variety to stressful situations.

Somtri triticale has low susceptibility to fusarium and ergot giving a production of healthy and unpolluted fodder. Somtri triticale produces high grain yields.

Winter Triticale

Conventional Winter Triticale

Triticale is becoming more popular with growers across the country due to a number of reasons. One being an increased usage of triticale in the Anaerobic Digestate market.

Crossed between Wheat and Rye, Triticale is typically long strawed and suited to drought tolerant land where the deeper rooting system can tap into available nutrients and moisture further down into the soil.

Triticale performs best financially when in the 2nd or 3rd wheat slot as it is fairly inexpensive to grow and is less affective to take all.

Triticale can also be useful for fields close to woodlands as Rabbits will not eat the seed.

Securo

Cope Seeds are very proud to be the chosen UK Marketing Agents for this outstanding new triticale variety added to the AHDB Descriptive list in 2017.

One of the best triticale varieties that has come through in recent years SECURO offers growers a safe and reliable option particularly during times of high carry over disease pressure.

  • Highest Protein Potential of any listed variety
  • Tall Straw with High Straw Yields
  • High Specific Weight

We have a very limited seed production of C2 seed available for Autumn 2019 and therefore suggest that anyone interested in securing seed of this NEW outstanding triticale variety register their interest as early as possible.
