We can provide the latest seed varieties to help you maximise the productivity of your crop. This includes seed for wheat, barley, canola and pasture to name a few.
It’s important to consider all options available when choosing the source of seed. Common practice is to retain seed from harvest and store it over summer for the following year.
At Elders we believe the better option is to ‘freshen up’ and introduce a percentage of new seed every year bought from a reputable seed producer. This ensures seed quality, purity, genetic potential and marketability are retained. Keeping seed year on year is like making a photocopy of a photocopy and we all know how quickly quality drops off when you do that.
There are many exciting new varieties and as with all new promising varieties, demand is usually high and seed availablity will be put under pressure. For this reason, it is important to get seed orders in as early as possible to try and guarantee your seed requirements are met.
