At Valley Seeds, we believe that our seed production processes play a vital part in improving the progression of pastures.
Our number one priority is to provide farmers with reliable seed which they can be confident will produce a successful pasture.
For farmers to be certain that they are purchasing a reliable product we ensure that our certified seed has a minimum germination of 90%, minimum purity of 98% and is free of over 700 prohibited weeds.
Over the past five years Valley Seeds has exponentially grown our seed production area. This coincides with the industry trends. For example, we saw Tasmania growing approximately 5000 hectares of pasture seed in 2019.*
Valley Seeds pasture seed production paddocks are sown in partnership with farmers in Southern Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania.
These production paddocks are grazed throughout the growing season, providing the farmer with beneficial winter feed while also allowing us to confirm that the variety performs in both feed quality and seed production before being released commercially.
Valley Seeds is proudly 100% Australian owned. Most of our products are bred, trialled and grown in Australia. When purchasing pasture seed consider buying Australian grown and support another Australian farmer.
