Loss adjusters Morris Associates and Phoenix Chartered Loss Adjusters have merged to form Agrical, the largest team of dedicated farm, estate and equine adjusters in the UK.

The chief executive of the new company, Bob Morris, said the companies had merged to provide clients with greater consistency and quality of provision.

The creation of Agrical will see Morris's existing offices covering the south of England, while Phoenix's operations will oversee the Midlands, the north of England and Scotland. There is also a separate agreement with Wrenmores, which provides similar services in Wales and the Northwest.
