Germinal recognises excellence in management and farmers' roles as grassland custodians.
We are leading the industry to higher standards and a sustainable future.
The opportunity to reward skill and knowledge within the farming community allows Germinal to amplify our support of hard-working farmers - the stewards of the land and the complex ecosystem that depends on it. Food production in agriculture is grounded in those very farmers operating in an increasingly pressured industry where better efficiency, profitability and sustainable solutions are more important than ever.
The Grassland Manager of the Year Award acknowledges the expertise of the farmer in grassland management and getting the best from their farms.

Recognising Our Grass Heroes
Germinal continue to look to the future with a science led approach but also look back at our history and see the importance of the evolution of farming systems. The implementation of new technology has radically changed the face of agriculture but the tradition of handing down knowledge is still a valuable asset and more importantly, the true value of homegrown forage has never changed.
Germinal advocate strategies that meet the challenges of grassland management environmental practices. Our long-term investment in research and development delivers award winning products that enable farmers to get the most from their forage crops. On the ground, we share our expertise, promoting best practice and the value of modern varieties. Leading that knowledge sharing relationship continues a strong tradition for both Germinal and farmers.
As forage and grass seed specialists Germinal are committed to raising standards through training, practical advice and better products. We believe in quality grass seed and are proud to award farmers whose dedication and resource management are successfully shining a light on how modern, sustainable and profitable farming is achieved through great grassland management.
