Agrovista says the purchase will allow the two businesses to combine existing technical expertise and provide growers and clients with a full agronomic package from variety selection through to end-market focus.

Paul Nickerson, owner of John Ebbage Seeds, said: "This strategic move will benefit both businesses and their customers allowing for technical development and investment in the seeds sector and offering important opportunities for growth. The partnership will allow the continuation of the existing Ebbage business model for current clients whilst opening new areas to evolve the business with Agrovista".

Chris Clayton, managing director of Agrovista, commented: "This exciting development will build on the strengths of both businesses and enable strategic growth for Agrovista within the seed sector. We are delighted to welcome Paul and the team from Ebbage into Agrovista and look forward to building on their outstanding success".

All staff will transfer to Agrovista UK.
