Why Choose Us?

PGG Wrightson Seeds Limited is New Zealand’s leading seed production company.

We are world leaders in specialist multiplication services for all small seed products. We have vast experience in small seed production, with our history of importing and exporting dating back to the start of the New Zealand seed industry in the early 1900s.

Our expert knowledge, combined with New Zealand’s favourable environment, temperate climate and availability of irrigation is the perfect situation for seed multiplication to maximise your counter season production.

NZ Environment
With cool winters and hot dry summers, abundant irrigation and naturally fertile soils, NZ is the most important small seed production region of the Southern Hemisphere. 

We partner with world leaders in precision agriculture and have invested in specifically designed applications to map, manage and trace seed from planting to harvest, processing to shipment. 

Skilled Growers
Our large base of over 450 highly-skilled farmer growers, use advanced farming techniques, modern irrigation systems and are amongst the most sophisticated and highly skilled growers in the world. 

Technical Services
Kimihia, our 250 ha research farm, has a dedicated technical services team who trial and evaluate species and develop specific management practices before commercial production commences.  

Our Main Species

We are professionals in the multiplication of seed, with over 25 years’ experience multiplying a wide range of forage, amenity and vegetable seed, including open-pollinated and hybrid crops.

We have the ability to undertake small seed bulk up in our nursery environment, complete isolation through pollen tent productions right up to fully commercial productions of several hundred tonnes.

Our focus on quality is paramount throughout all productions, both field hygiene and processing are managed to the highest possible standards and in accordance with all seed certification requirements.

Our location in New Zealand means we can provide counter-season multiplication in a Southern Hemisphere environment.

The NZ growing environment means a wide range of species can be produced here - ryegrass, white clover and brassicas are especially adapted to our climate. Cereals, Asian vegetables and oilseed crops are all also suitable.
