Mr. Hemmant was presented with his prize by Clive Deeley, Eastern Regional Manager for CF Fertilisers UK Ltd.

Also present were Jack Russell, Fertiliser Business Development Manager for Frontier Agriculture Ltd, the UK’s leading crop production and grain marketing business, together with Carl Ashworth, Senior Farm Trader at Frontier Agriculture Ltd, who has helped the Hemmant family manage their fertiliser, seed and grain marketing requirements for over 30 years.

“We buy all of our fertiliser through Frontier Agriculture and have purchased Nitram for a number of years,” states Mr. Hemmant, who farms in partnership with his father, Paul, and mother, Margaret.

Operating as Woodhouse Farms, based at Poplar Farm, Sisland, near Norwich, they own 500 acres of arable land producing winter wheat, winter barley, spring barley, oilseed rape and fodder beet, as well as 1500 pigs and 70 suckler cows.

“We are a traditional mixed farm and utilise the manure from our livestock operations in the production of arable crops, so we still plough all of our lighter land.

“We find that Nitram is a consistent, top-quality product which suits our farm and the system we operate. We normally order our fertiliser early and the 10 tonnes of Nitram which we won will be put to good use this season.”

Nitram, the market-leading Ammonium Nitrate (AN) fertiliser brand and the only straight Nitrogen product produced in the UK, is a highly reliable and consistent straight Nitrogen fertiliser which is ideal for use on arable and in grassland systems throughout the growing season.
