Appointment of Christopher Spedding

We are very pleased to announce that Chris Spedding has joined us as Commercial Director at Premium Crops. Chris has spent 24 years with Robin Appel Ltd, having been a director of the business for the last 12 years.

Chris's arrival at Premium Crops coincides with the merger of Premium Crops Ltd and Technology Crops Ltd. This has created a combined company, trading under the Premium Crops name, which is the UK's largest specialist crops business.

Chris is based at Hambledon in Hampshire and is managing the High Erucic Acid Rape (HEAR) operation within the business as well as being involved in our portfolio of niche, specialist crops. As well as HEAR, these now include both Winter and Spring Linseed, Red Wheat, Borage, Canary Seed, White Millet, Spring Naked Oats, Lupins and Ahiflower.

We look forward to Chris playing a key role in the operation and development of the business and to improving the service we offer our farmer customers.


We are at CropTec 2014 this year, on the 19th and 20th of November. Come and visit our stand to hear about more exciting spring cropping options. As well as our old staples Linseed and Red Wheat, we now have a new range of crops to offer including Borage, Ahiflower and Lupins.
