What We Offer

What We Offer

Midlands Seed is one of New Zealand’s top agricultural producers of specialty seeds and food ingredients, delivering 95% of the country’s Marrowfat peas and 40% of the world’s hybrid Carrot seed.

With world-leading quality as our benchmark, our latitude, pristine air quality, consistent water supply and exceptional soil types allow us to produce superior products. Built on research and development, our people ensure we are trusted partners for farmers, suppliers, and international buyers.

Our Seed Production focuses on two separate areas, Seed Production of Vegetable and Herbage Seed and Bulk Arable Seed Production.

Seed Production

We grow a range of Vegetable and Herbage Seed crops under forward contract. Our vertically integrated supply chain, which includes agricultural contracting and crop pollination, allows us to control the quality at every step of production.

30 Years Experience in Seed Production & Research

Midlands Seed was established in 1990, and through innovation and ingenuity we have become one of New Zealand’s top agricultural producers and suppliers of specialty vegetable and herbage seeds. Since the beginning, one of our main priorities has been a focus on research, supplying our team with a wealth of industry knowledge and insight, particularly in hybrid seed crop production.

Varietal Purity & Crop Isolation

Varietal purity throughout the total production and supply process is of paramount importance, to protect the interest of buyers and the integrity of Quality Assurance Programmes. We have implemented Seed Crop Isolation Distance (SCID), a local system established for sharing information between other seed producers and local farmers about what crops are being planted.  This ensures crops are appropriately isolated to avoid contamination and off types, maintaining hybridity.
