About JK Senior & Sons

Simon and Dale Senior have been involved in the family business since 1982 and have a wealth of experience on growing crops in Yorkshire and the surrounding area. Both Simon and Dale are AICC, BASIS and FACTS members and fully understand their customers' requirements during the growing season, covering mainly cereals, oil seeds and pulses. Simon and Dale have also been involved with the Single Payments Scheme, ELS and NVZ compliance, guiding growers wherever possible.

More recently, Alex Creswell joined the company and helps with field walking during the early part of spring.

Based in Seaton, Hull, our office, which is staffed by Sharon and Lydia, is dedicated to providing a top quality service for our buying group and agronomy service.

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.

We are BASIS, FACTS, TIS and ICM qualified.
