Australian Grain Technologies (AGT)
AGT aims to make it easy for every Australian grain grower to enjoy access to its improved varieties. There are two ways to source seed of AGT varieties.
AGT Affiliates are a network of professional seed growers and processors based in key locations across Australia, chosen to produce and distribute the very best quality seed of AGT varieties in accordance with the industry’s highest quality standards. AGT Affiliates are responsible for production, grading, sales and distribution of all AGT varieties. They offer both wholesale and retail sales capacity, meaning growers can access seed of AGT varieties from AGT Affiliates directly or through most agricultural merchandising retail stores. AGT does not sell seed direct to growers, nor does AGT earn any income from the sale of seed. Find out more here.
Seed Sharing™ is a low cost way of introducing AGT’s improved genetics into your program. Seed Sharing™ is a licensed farmer-to-farmer trading scheme where grain of selected AGT varieties may be traded between farmers to use as seed. Farmers who have grown a crop of an AGT variety may sell seed to another farmer at a price or arrangement negotiated between them, providing they complete an AGT Seed Sharing™ License Agreement form.
