Established in 1969 by John Senior, J.K.Senior and Sons has become one of the leading independent crop monitoring and management consultancies in the North of England. The Company runs a large Established Advisory and Buying Group. Group members enjoy exceptionally competitive rates for crop protection products - giving them a real chance to reduce overheads in a very competitive market.
Being independent and members of the Association of Independent Crop Consultants (AICC) means J.K.Senior and Sons do not take commission on the products we recommend. During forty years of trading we have developed an enviable reputation for total professionalism and integrity.
