Birketts has advised Deborah Green, the director of Crop Management Information Ltd, on its transfer of undertakings to cutting edge farming company Beeswax Dyson Farming Limited.
Founded in 1986, CMI became known for its expertise with regard to arable farming systems. CMI took a scientific approach to analysing data found in world literature and collected from its own research projects. The findings from these data were then disseminated to the arable farming community across the UK and Europe. CMI ceased trading as a business in December 2019 and its staff have moved to Beeswax in order to continue servicing the agricultural community under the name Green Crop Information.
Specialising in a number of aspects of farming including soil health and crop production, Beeswax (owned by celebrated inventor Sir James Dyson) hopes that the acquisition of the undertakings of CMI will enable it to further expand and diversify its sustainable agriculture and farming practice offerings out to the wider agricultural community.
The transaction was led by Lisa Gray (Picture), with support from Abigail Trencher in the Employment Team.
