Through innovation, we’ve become one of New Zealand’s top agricultural seed producers.
Research & Development
From the company's beginning, one of its main priorities has been a focus on research to help secure the futures of both the company and their farmer clientele. As a result the company now has extensive research and breeding programmes to support and encourage the development of their production base for identifiable markets. Overseas varieties are constantly being evaluated for their suitability to New Zealand's magnificent growing conditions, and our Southern hemisphere location offers an obvious competitive advantage to our customers.
One clear illustration of the success of the company's research is our ability to produce hybrid crops. Hybrid production is not only supported by Midlands field ability, but a mature industry approach to crop isolation.
In order to maintain and increase New Zealand's production profile globally, Midlands Seed Ltd seeks to identify markets for seeds that could be produced in New Zealand and to investigate the possibility of breeding in conjunction with appropriate evaluation and testing. This will ensure that now and in the future New Zealand will maintain and increase its seed production profile.
Research and Development is a key component of who we are and what we stand for.
