Our commitment to research
At Upper Murray Seeds we have a strong commitment to developing innovative pasture and forage crop cultivars suited to the wide range of climates experienced across Australia, and around the world.
World-class research facilities
In 2018, Upper Murray Seeds R&D program expanded significantly with the establishment of the UMS Cressy Research Station in the Tasmanian midlands.
Development & Assessment
This centre of excellence is where new varieties are developed and assessed under a system of replicated trial plots and broader grazing trials to measure specific traits such as yield, palatability and persistence prior to the release of any new variety.
The future of pasture
The future of Upper Murray Seeds is both exciting and challenging, as we continue to grow and invest in breeding new pasture varieties suited to Australia’s variable climate and more extreme conditions.
