PGG Wrightson Seeds are world leaders in delivering forage innovations to our customers. Development of novel endophytes for ryegrass and tall fescue, in conjunction with AgResearch, has been a major technological breakthrough for the pastoral industry.
PGG Wrightson Seeds has a strong emphasis on research and development and extensive experience in plant breeding. Our research ensures that any cultivars introduced into the market will perform under temperate farming systems with the goal of increasing on-farm productivity and profitability.
The primary base for PGG Wrightson Seeds Research is the Kimihia Research Centre, Lincoln. From Kimihia, most of the NZ Research and Development work is coordinated. This is a summer dry area and is located within the main seed production areas of NZ.
To achieve our goals, PGG Wrightson Seeds has developed relationships with three primary research partners; AgResearch and Plant & Food Research in New Zealand, and the Molecular Plant Breeding CRC in Australia.
