Carrot Calender

Carrot Seed

The inland area of the Canterbury Plains has become a major area of production in the Southern Hemisphere for European hybrid types of carrots.  Our location allows for convenient and cost effective out-of–season carrot seed production.

South Pacific Seeds New Zealand Ltd has a strong reputation for producing quality disease free and weed free hybrid carrot seed using the seed to seed method. New Zealand’s cool winters ensure reliable bolting, countered with the warm dry summers that provide good pollination and harvesting conditions for the carrot seed.

There are a variety of regional crops and rotations in the Canterbury area, this enables early planting of seed, allowing for good establishment before winter period.
