  • Seed can only be legally traded with the return of a completed AGT Seed Sharing Licence Agreement.

Download the Seed Sharing Licence Agreement Form:

Full Seed Sharing Terms and Conditions:

Growers who purchased seed of an eligible AGT wheat variety (see above) from a recognised seed retailer, are offered the legal right, under the terms of a Licence Agreement, to sell or trade grain derived from these varieties to another grower for use as seed under AGT’s unique Seed Sharing model.

AGT offers the grower who originally purchased seed from a recognised retailer (the “Seller“) the legal right to sell or trade seed of these varieties to another grower referred to in the attached Licence Agreement as the “Purchaser” at a price or arrangement agreed to between the “Seller” and the “Purchaser“.

AGT requires a signed “AGT Seed Sharing Licence Agreement” to be completed by the “Seller” and the person/business to whom they wish to sell or trade the seed (the “Purchaser“).  If the purchaser is a registered NGR card user, providing the NGR number will assist in ensuring the records relating to the specific business purchasing seed of the variety are accurate, but this is not essential to the transaction.

The AGT Seed Sharing Licence Agreement should be completed and returned to AGT as soon as possible following the transaction between the “Seller” and the “Purchaser“.  It is important to note that no seed can be legally traded without the return of a completed AGT Seed Sharing License Agreement.  The sale or trade of seed without a completed and returned License Agreement is an infringement of Australian Law under the Plant Breeders Rights ACT of 1994, and the “Seller” would be liable.

The contract/license agreement also provides a range of indemnities, disclaimers and releases included to provide the “Seller” with a degree of legal protection (refer section 3 of the License Agreement).
