Recent Developments

  • In May 2020, Barenbrug Australia Pty Ltd and Nuseed Pty Ltd, a fully owned subsidiary of Nufarm Limited, announced that they have formalized a license agreement for Barenbrug Australia to use Nuseed Australia's sorghum and sunflower germplasm portfolio and perform R&D, plant breeding, and commercialization services. This declaration shows that Nuseed Australia prioritizes and concentrates on maintaining its market-leading position in the Australian canola and monola markets and its ongoing commitments to Australian research and development as the global commercialization partner for CSIRO and GRDC for Nuseed Omega-3 canola. The partnership closely relates to Barenbrug's strategic goal of dominating the Australian summer crop, which includes sustained investment in R&D and a long-term emphasis.
  • In February 2020, the third-largest pasture seed business in Australia, Pasture Genetics Pty Ltd., has been acquired by S&W Seed Company pursuant to a binding agreement. The acquisition, which is in line with S&W's previous recent attempts in Australia to become one of the top suppliers of premier seed genetics to Australian farmers, will broaden and diversify the company's product offerings there. Alfalfa, medic, clovers, vetch, forage cereals, as well as pasture and other grasses, are all part of Pasture Genetics' seed product line. The company's exclusive Goldstrike® seed coating technology, which can prevent rhizobia inoculation and increase shelf life, is considered to be a major competitive advantage.
