Witney Grain is an independent grain trading specialist and has been trading grain for over 20 years.
We pride ourselves on providing up-to-date and efficient marketing solutions and building long term relationships with our farmer suppliers, providing a strong link between them and the global market place whilst offering bespoke grain contracts including a range of option contracts and Grain Pools.
Pool marketing is a strategy for the risk-averse, an averaging exercise where you forego the very best of the market in favour of protection from the worst. This is particularly pertinent when prices threaten or even go below the cost of production. A common strategy is to use pools alongside other routes to market to avoid ‘having all your eggs in one basket’ and allow you to make the most of any temporary peaks in the market.
The New Year saw yet another finish to our autumn pools that proved to be very successful. Our results so far have been very promising, beating many of our competitors and returning one of the best pool prices available to our customers and look to continue that form going into the next season. Our grain pools are now open with details shown below.

Fertiliser - Efficiently Supplying Quality Products
In 2009 Witney Grain entered the fertiliser market in order to meet the needs of our customers. Now in 2015 we have established key partnerships with a selection of the UK’s most respected suppliers who provide us and our customers with the assurance of meeting all nutrient requirements in the most efficient way.
We have very competitive prices for all grades of fertiliser, without compromising on quality. We work hard to build close relationships with our suppliers in order to obtain the best possible prices for our customers and as a result we will almost certainly make financial and practical sense as your preferred supplier.
We pride ourselves that all staff have an extensive background in agricultural trading and we use this experience to provide a valuable insight into the developing market and future needs. We believe that it is time for soil fertility to be managed in a more sustainable manner, as a result we aim to provide products with accurate spreading patterns as well as being able to provide Nitrogen products with inhibitor coatings to limit leaching in order to increase efficiency.
As well as offering all standard blended grades, we are also able to blend specific grades on an individual basis with the addition of micronutrients if required. Witney Grain is able to provide flexible delivery on all products to all areas of the UK.
Witney Grain have successful partnerships with some of the UK’s most respected liquid fertiliser suppliers and as a result there are quality products at great prices available now. Witney Grain can also help source tanks for those considering a switch to liquids.

You can now order all your nutritional inputs at Witney Grain, with the addition of Lime to our product list. Our products are designed to target and maintain soil pH values and add vital nutrients at the same time. Another benefit is approval by the Soil Association to be used on organic farms. We have plenty of information and data to discuss at any time, so if there are any queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Witney Grain's Fertiliser Options
Take advantage of Witney Grain's "Fertiliser Options" for
a great deal on KAN 46% Fertiliser. KAN is a Urea fertiliser with an AGROTAIN inhibitor coating to prevent volatilisation thus producing impressive yields with reduced storage requirement at a better value than Ammonium Nitrate.
Fibrophos is a P & K Fertiliser of organic origin containing mainly Phosphate and Potash. The added benefits of Fibrophos include Micro & Macronutrients such as Sulphur, Magnesium, Calcium and Sodium that are present as well as a range of important trace elements.
Fibrophos is derived from the incineration of predominantly deep litter poultry manure. The result of which is an ash that contains all the plants required nutrients except nitrogen. P-Grow is a Phosphate rich fertiliser derived from burnt Bone meal.
