Rutherfords is part of ProCam, one of the largest agronomy companies in the UK, employing more professional agronomists, crop walking more acres than any other organisation in the country. The Group now covers the whole of the British Isles from the South West of England to Northern Scotland.
Rutherfords was established on 1st April 1986 with the vision of providing professional farmers with a range of technically based agronomy services designed to maximise their production efficiency.
At the heart of these services lies a commitment to agronomy and the provision of on-farm advice of the highest standard. It’s a formula that over the years has benefited hundreds of crop producers.
And whilst the company has changed considerably since the early days, its key players and senior managers remain the same ensuring the continuing core values of technical excellence, outstanding customer service and empathy with the farming community remain constant.
Rutherfords’ objective is to help all customers achieve production levels that put them in the top 25% of producers for their region and we provide a comprehensive range of services to help them achieve that.
Rutherfords' customers benefit from our local knowledge of their individual growing environments linked with the benefits from the central resources provided by the ProCam CP Ltd. These resources include national schemes such as the 4cast predictive agronomy system to provide essential crop information for Rutherfords' agronomists and customers. Rutherfords local knowledge combined with its national scale gives farmers the best of both worlds when it comes to making the best decisions for their crops and businesses as a whole.
The figures say it all. At a time when the total market for crop protection products has fallen by 25% and the number of agronomists employed is down by 30%, ProCam continues to grow and has doubled its investment in the future of UK agronomy and crop production.
