Our Story

It all started when a leading US research firm established itself in Biloela to introduce and adapt safflower crops to Australia. There, Pacific Seeds was born, and through ongoing research and breeding programs in key crops, began to shape the country’s agricultural industry.

In 1974 we released Australia’s first hybrid sunflower, in 1988 introduced the world’s first hybrid canola, and in the early 90s, MR-Buster saw us lead the way in hybrid grain sorghum. By 1996, we merged with Advanta Seeds, and brought herbicide tolerance technology to canola through our Hyola® hybrids. Most recently, we’ve developed and released igrowth® sorghum, world first, innovative technology improving grower flexibility and weed control options.

Our Kununurra farms

We have two properties in Kununurra, ‘Cave Springs’ and ‘Rumu’. When combined, these two farms are approximately 900 hectares and produce a variety of seeds including grain sorghum, forage sorghum, field corn, sweet corn and parent seed.

The journey of seed

All seed produced in Kununurra must make the long journey back to Toowoomba for processing and distribution. This journey is approximately 3,340km and can take anywhere from three to five days.
