Manterra has its foundations in a farming business stretching back to the beginning of the last century. That farming partnership has always been progressive in its approach to combinable and vegetable production, and Manterra reflects those principles. Agriculture now faces its biggest challenge in living memory - the need to reconcile production and profit with the demand for reduced environmental impact. The drivers of modern farm profitability are fertiliser, pesticides and logistics. Yet these are the areas of agricultural practice which are most under threat. Agricultural inputs must be used with much improved efficiency to meet the demands of legislation and the market.
