Hectare Trading is set to redefine the landscape of crop trading in the UK with its innovative features, aimed at making crop trading simple, smart, and effective, now more than ever before.
Arable farmers face many challenges in managing their crop trades, such as limited access to market insights, trading position information saved in one place on paper or a spreadsheet and missing market highs while out working in the field.
Conversely, grain buyers are often under time pressure to fulfil quotas and contracts, requiring them to quickly get the right crop on their books at the right specification for a fair price.
Hectare Trading is designed to address these pain points and usher in a new era of control and connectivity in the world of crop trading. This revamped platform retains all the best features that made Graindex popular with thousands of UK farmers while introducing innovative benefits aimed at further simplifying the trading process.
