PGG Wrightson Seeds operates in Australia as DLF Seeds, employing over 120 staff with expertise ranging from plant breeding to agronomic sales support.
While DLF Seeds is a new name in Australia, our commitment to Australian agriculture goes back to our origins in Australia. From our humble beginnings in Melbourne in the 1930s to the nationwide business we are today, we have sought to continually introduce new innovations to drive the success of Australian farmers.
Today we are involved across the entire seed supply chain. In addition to our R & D programmes, we contract thousands of hectares of land for seed production. After harvest we work with seed cleaners and territory authorities to ensure that our seed is of the highest quality. We provide seed mixing and seed treatment services and we distribute from one of our five distribution facilities across Australia.
Our passion and expertise for developing the highest quality seed means we can deliver the best results to our customers – farmers and rural retailers.
Our research centre at Ballarat breeds and evaluates pasture products for Australia’s diversified pastoral systems, which is crucial in helping us deliver high performance products that are suitable for Australia’s unique conditions and farming systems.
Our Australian research partners include CISRO, University of Western Australia, University of New England and TIA (Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture). We are also involved in a variety of evaluation trials with MLA (Meat and Livestock Australia) as part of an investment in the Pasture Trial Network.
Australia-wide, five manufacturing and distribution facilities clean, treat, mix and deliver our seed technologies quickly and efficiently to our customers, supported by technical Sales Agronomists in each state.
DLF Seeds carries the PGG Wrightson Seeds, AusWest and Stephen Pasture Seeds (including Agricom) product portfolios. Along with these proprietary ranges, DLF Seeds also supply a range of common seed products.
