Sheldon Agri is a privately owned research and development company producing Australian seed suited to Australian conditions. Formed in 2006, Sheldon Agri took over the work originally started by Upper Murray Seeds.
Sheldon Agri works with breeders, researchers, universities and government bodies to access the best genetics available from their seed breeding programs. Seed varieties are then trialled and assessed to evaluate their market suitability and to ensure they will persist and perform under Australian conditions. It takes many years to select and bring a new variety to market.
An independent agronomist manages Sheldon Agri, which operates under strict quality control systems.
Sheldon Agri seed varieties are now available commercially and are proving themselves in the marketplace, with many varieties being sold by seed companies both in Australia and overseas.
