New Zealand has the world’s best temperate zone pasture seed development and breeding programmes whereby new varieties are being developed constantly and released annually. The source varieties are selected from all over the world and bred in the New Zealand breeding programmes to develop new innovative materials. The programmes are also developing endophytes together with pest resistance and drought tolerance in pastures and new innovations are regularly occurring in these areas.
In the pasture based system pastures are used as a natural and complete animal feed to replace expensive concentrate and pre-mix rations – thus reducing dramatically the cost of production.
All seed is certified to ISTA requirements and supplied with purity and germination information.
