Tasglobal seeds has over 60 years of combined experience in seed production and processing, and herbage plant cultivar development.
We are in partnership with the Tasmanian Institute of Agricultural Research (TIAR) and the Tasmanian Department of Primary Industry and Water (DPIW) to undertake research and promote our jointly developed grass and legume cultivars.
In recent times we have both undertaken, or through our TIAR collegues, had access to unique germplasm collected in Azerbaijan, Kazakstan and Spain.
CRDS, located in the Northern Midlands of Tasmania, just south of the township of Cressy, is the southernmost broad-acreagricultural research station in Australia. The station comprises approximately 483 Ha of a diverse mix of three soil classes. These are light red sandy loam on the rises, grey loam and a fertile, heavy black clay usually found in lower lying areas. These soils are representative of the general types found in the Northern Midlands. Brumby ’s Creek (arguably one of the best trout fishing waters in Australia - some say the world!), denoting the western boundary, is the source of irrigation water. The average annual rainfall is 640mm.
Tasglobal Seeds is continually developing new cultivars for the temperate areas of Australia, and in a collaborative project, for the tropics and sub-tropics.
