Pasture Seed & Advice

Kiwi Seed`s aim is to support you in finding the best suitable pasture plants available for your needs. As an independent seed supply company, we are in the position to select seed varieties, which we believe are best suited for our clients. We offer expert advice and apply it to your situation.

Farmers often felt left alone once the bag of seed was sold, especially when dealing with a new variety. Years ago we made the decision to change that and since then have been proudly working together with Lincoln University's - Dryland research team, aiming to transfer knowledge from research stations to New Zealand farmers. 

We know by managing your pasture right, you can improve your productivity, open up new land and prosper in ways previouls believed unprofitable.

 

Dryland Pasture

Kiwi Seed has the focus to provide the best and most productive pasture possible. We are a dryland specialist. It is what we have faced on a home front and it is where we aim to help others in dryland environments throughout NZ to use the best possible pasture cultivars that are available to counter this.

Vineyard

Vineyard managers struggle with the same issues as our local farmer- dry and compact soils, lacking in Nitrogen. We can help to improve vineyard productivity. We have winter active fescues supplying feed when you want it and becoming summer dormant when moisture is needed for the plant rather than the ground cover. We stock nitrogen fixing legumes, insect attracting species and other species that will return nutrients, help pollination and maintain soil health.
