Sustainability

PGG Wrightson Seeds is active in a number of programmes seeking to develop pastures and forages which improve environmental sustainability on-farm.

PGG Wrightson is a member of the Pastoral Greenhouse Gas Research Consortium, an industry-wide group seeking to develop technologies to reduce methane emissions from ruminant livestock. The Company also participates in breeding and research programmes which aim to tackle issues such as: improved plant efficiency, increased drought tolerance and reduced nitrate leaching. Good stewardship also requires that farmers undertake crop rotation and PGG Wrightson works closely with our seed growers and with our farmer customers to ensure appropriate practices are in place on-farm.
