Seed exports provide continuing success

Seed and grain exports increased by 20% last year to earn New Zealand $216 million with further growth projecting export revenue to reach $240m by 2022.
Latest trade statistics show seed produced in NZ commands a premium over that exported by competitors, including the United States, Australia and Chile.
According to traders that is due largely to the local industry’s focus on quality and reliability of supply.
