Services

Southern Seed Technology Ltd is an Agribusiness servicing the needs of National and International plant breeders, seed producers and seed marketers. SST is not a plant breeding company, nor does it have its own proprietary varieties.

Arable Seed Production

All seed is produced under ISTA rules and arable seed lines can be OECD or IOSCA certified if required.

Our seed multiplications range in size from a few square meters to several hectares.

Each location for multiplications is dependent on our your requirements, requests and in some species the need for isolation.

Small multiplications are grown on our research farm and larger multiplications use a select pool of experienced growers who we sub-contract to produce crops under our management.

Field Trials

Southern Seed Technology undertake a range of field trials and assessments for national and international organisations
