Research

Australian farmers through Agricom have access to products with beneficial advances in pest and disease tolerance through breeding and the addition of endophyte, for better persistence, productivity and reliable animal performance.

Understanding the breeding process is useful when considering the purchase of a new product. All Agricom products have been progressed through each step in the breeding programme, including extensive off-site evaluation in different environments and farming systems throughout Australia. Farmers can buy Agricom cultivars with confidence knowing they come from a highly researched and developed breeding programme, backed by strong technical support to retailers and farmers alike.

You can be confident that the level of science and research which goes into the breeding and evaluation of Agricom cultivars is focussed on ensuring farmers have access to the ‘best fit’ pasture options for their farming practice. This includes a diverse range of species and the number of cultivars and the variation of characteristics in cultivars and that ‘what is on the tag is in the bag’.
