Hyola® Hybrid Canola Seed Production







Instrumental to Pacific Seeds success in the hybrid seed industry has been its commitment and ability to consistently produce high quality seed under a range of seasonal conditions. By adopting and setting industry best practices and utilising proven technological advances, Pacific Seeds has established itself and its seed grower partners as industry leaders.

The specialist production team has selected two major seed production sites, Kununurra, situated on the Ord River, Western Australia and the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area (MIA) in southern NSW. These locations offer a number of agronomic advantages including isolation from many pests and diseases and a relatively constant day length which assists with out of season production.

Seed crops are produced in Southern, Central and Northern NSW, Southern Victoria, South West Queensland, Far North Queensland, Tasmania, Chile, North America, Canada, France and Germany. The use of these geographically diverse areas allows for the spread of planting throughout different times of the year. This effectively allows for adjustment to be made to targets in-line with production and marketing plans for industry hybrid canola seed requirements.
As a provider of new and improved plant varieties for plant, animal and food production chains, Pacific Seeds uses and supports the use of conventional and modern genetic biotechnologies in its R&D programs. This application of traditional and innovative plant genetic technology provides added value and other benefits to growers, processors and consumers of our products.

Although Pacific Seeds has access to the latest modern biotechnology, it recognises the need to work with, and address the concerns its customers, consumers and the wider community may have about the use of such technology.

Pacific Seeds’ commitment to scientifically-based research and compliance with biotechnology regulations was clearly demonstrated when we became the first company to voluntarily commit to the Code of Ethical Practice for Biotechnology in Queensland.

Pacific Seeds statement: “Farmers and consumers have the right to choose whether they will accept genetically modified products. Seed companies will ultimately have to tailor their breeding programs to their client’s needs, be it for GMO, non-GMO or organic production”.

No GM material has been incorporated by Pacific Seeds into any of its current varieties of grain sorghum, forage sorghum, maize, sunflower, soybean, sweet corn, oats or wheat species. Selected canola hybrids have incorporated the Roundup Ready or Truflex GM herbicide trait and are labelled accordingly as such.
