Cropmark Seeds Ltd specialises in the business of breeding and marketing pasture varieties that offer customers very real performance advantages, through improving their livestock performance, farming systems and bottom line results.
In line with its philosophy of ‘only the best’, Cropmark Seeds markets a range of leading proprietary pasture, turf, brassica and cereal varieties. Highest quality, high-yielding varieties are bred to deliver improved yield, higher nutritional values and disease resistance, coupled with the ability to provide more quality forage when most needed. Varieties such as Matrix, Revolution, Ultra, Kai, Sonik, Zoom™ and Grasslands Demand have forged leading reputations on farms throughout New Zealand.
Each year, Cropmark Seeds runs on average 20 on-farm trials at sites throughout New Zealand and 12 throughout Victoria to thoroughly evaluate its varieties under real farming conditions, for factors such as total yield, seasonal yield, forage quality, persistence and disease resistance. Only the very highest performing varieties are commercialised providing they perform to the company’s stringent selection standards.
