Welcome to CAS Limited

Working with farmers across the north-west for over 28 years

With our industry experience spanning three decades and a team of highly skilled agronomists, CAS has grown from the small start-up business to a company that is now part of one of the largest agricultural businesses in the UK. We can provide crop planning, the supply of all crop inputs, seed, fertilisers and plant protection products, plus their application from slug pelleting, nematicide application, crop-spraying and fertilising up to 36 metres.

Our long-serving staff and loyal clientele, many of whom have been with us since the start, are testament to the exceptionally high-level, professional and personal service provided to our customers seven days a week during the main growing season. You’ll be working with local people at a local business, but with product and technical support from national supplier HLHutchinsons.
