Seed Research, Development & Extension
At Seedmark the culture of Research, Development and Extension (R, D & E,) has never been about keeping up with what’s new. Seedmark’s full R, D & E program is about driving the change necessary within the agricultural industry to keep our customers sustainable and profitable into the future.
Seedmark R, D & E investments ensure that customers using any products from our range can be satisfied that all due diligence work has been carried out, both in the laboratory and in the field, prior to release.
Seedmark has a number of long standing partnerships with a number of breeding organizations, both within Australia and from abroad, stretching across a range of field crops and most pasture species.
Our dedicated team of Agronomists, lead by our product development and extension
manager, work together in alliance with our R & D partners to develop relevant and up to date Best Management and Variety Management Packages to ensure the rapid uptake and benefit of any newly developed germplasm.
Extension and business development is also pivotal to allow new products market access. Seedmark’s dedicated team ensures end users, such as millers and maltsters, are both involved and aware of any new relevant product development.
Working together with more than a dozen Research Partners, Seedmark is proud to fund R, D & E in field crops and pastures such as wheat, barley, canola, durum, vetch, medic, sub-clover, annual and perennial clover, forage and milling oats, annual and perennial grasses, sorghum, corn and Lucerne.
Furthermore, Seedmark’s team of highly skilled agronomists are constantly seeking and exploring new opportunities which may further drive production and profitability at the farm gate level.
Research, Development and Extension is the key to a sustainable and profitable future for Australian farming communities, and Seedmark is proud to be a major stakeholder in the development and delivery of new and innovative products to satisfy the needs in a challenging and changing environment.
