Corteva Agriscience UK are delighted with the response to our recent Farmer Survey which has provided valuable insights in our mission to support growers.  

Submissions were sent from across the UK, with the majority coming from farmers with an average farm size over 500 Ha.

Here are just some of the key highlights from the survey:

  • Almost three quarters of participants had heard of Corteva or had a deeper knowledge of the company, with feedback on experiences being positive.
  • The quality of support and information provided by Corteva, when ranked against other manufacturers, came out on top.
  • When asked what participants would like to hear about from us, the main responses included information on innovative products alongside advice and technical support.
  • The area of sustainability remains a hot topic and something respondents are keen to continue to hear more about.
  • More than 70% of respondents highlighted the desire to attend open days and regional events. Cereals Event proved to remain a staple among those who submitted answers, with more than half outlining they attend the event. We can’t wait to see you at Cereals again this year (take a look at some of the highlights from 2023)
