It’s important to consider all options available when choosing a seed source.
It’s common practice to retain seeds from harvest, storing and reusing them for the following year. To help your farm achieve the best results, Elders recommend you freshen up your seeds for harvest by introducing a percentage of new seeds each year from a reputable supplier. This ensures the seed quality, purity, genetic potential, and marketability are all retained.
There are many exciting new varieties of seeds to bring onto your farm. Demand is usually high for all new promising varieties, leading to pressure on seed suppliers. For this reason, it’s important to order new seeds as early as possible, and guarantee your seed requirements will be met.
Elders prides itself on being a supplier of high quality products, through strong relationships with all major fertiliser domestic and international suppliers. This gives us the ability to source a wide range of products at competitive prices.
Our branch network stock a range of brands and are able to offer viable substitutes and alternatives to traditional applications. To maintain a suitable inventory of imported products, we work closely with fertiliser suppliers, sharing forecasts and demand cycles to ensure the correct amount of stock is ordered to meet client needs.
