HSR Maize Seed’s hands-on research and development into new hybrid seeds have made a significant impact on the Australian and New Zealand maize industry. We constantly work with plant breeding partners worldwide to source the highest quality genetic material to develop new exclusive varieties, with superior traits to those currently available.Comprehensive tests are undertaken for new varieties at numerous properties throughout the maize growing areas of New Zealand and Australia, including in a wide range of environments and growing conditions. Our developments in hybrid maize seeds are helping farmers grow better crops, enhancing New Zealand’s global reputation for supplying high-quality produce to feed the world.
As with any grain or meal feed products need to be kept dry as moisture combined with heat can cause fungi to grow. Common on farm storage methods are: in a shed or unused fertiliser bin; in a covered pit; on a concrete pad; or in a cutting, covered with plastic sheet and tyres. Most feed should be used reasonably expediently (within 40 - 50 days). The longer you plan to store feed products the better your storage facilities need to be.
