NZ Variety Development

We are exclusively involved in research and seed breeding through our partnership with the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS), part of Aberystwyth University in Wales. Germinal and IBERS have worked together since the mid-1980s, a collaboration that has led to ground breaking research, world leading advances in plant science and award-winning varieties.

Germinal have recently established a ryegrass breeding programme in New Zealand, based in Canterbury. This is the first time that the IBERS world leading germplasm has been released for breeding and selection work outside of the university, which is an exciting and important step forward in the advancement of the Germinal business in New Zealand.

While our original high sugar grasses have developed a strong market in New Zealand, New Zealand has a unique climate and as a result our farmers have specific needs from their pastures. Germinal and IBERS recognise the importance of breeding for New Zealand in New Zealand, and we are confident that our new breeding programme will lead to huge advances in our product portfolio.

With support from IBERS, our New Zealand team can focus on improving our germplasm with selection pressures for desired traits, while retaining the unique characteristics that our high sugar grasses are known for. Each generation of selections is then tested in our research programme to ensure we are delivering measurable improvements for our customers.


This exclusive collaboration allows Germinal to continually work towards our short and long term goals of farm profitability and global sustainability.
