We’re an Australian seed wholesaler, screening and supplying premium cultivars across Australasia. Our business is helping grow farmers’ productivity and profitability – choosing the right seed is just the beginning.

Seed Force was established in 2006. The founding Seed Force team was small, tough, with years of real-world farm experience and insider seed industry connections.

We quickly got to work planting local trials across Australia and attracting like-minded people with serious on-farm experience. To make sure a new Australian company could be at the forefront of plant breeding and technology, we joined forces with one of Europe’s most respected seed businesses – RAGT.

With the backing of an international seed powerhouse, we could focus on drawing on the latest R&D to help farmers get the best results from their broadacre crops, forage crops and pasture. Focussing on yield, quality, disease resistance and persistence, Seed Force has changed the game and led the way – taking farmers on the journey.

From humble beginnings to offering premium cultivars across a wide range of species, we are constantly growing, testing, fine-tuning and expanding our range. Every year we are adding new cultivars to a proven system that gives farmers the power to grow.

Our Australian operations are based in Shepparton, Victoria.
