Brassicas are the largest and most diversified seed crop produced by South Pacific Seeds New Zealand Ltd. We specialize in the production of hybrid Brassicas. We have experienced field staff that carry out the necessary field practices to give good quality hybrid seed, by ensuring isolation, trimming if necessary to provide good flowering nick, and control of bee numbers. All production information is passed to the field agronomists and any problems or specific varietal characteristics are recorded for future reference and customer information.

South Pacific Seeds Ltd uses the inland area of the Canterbury Plains to grow several types of radish. The cooler spring conditions provide a climate suitable for most varieties including later bolting types. The fertile soils, reliable irrigation combined with well-equipped growers produce high quality seed and yields. At harvest the warm dry winds provide good harvesting conditions and seed quality.
