Cates is world-renowned as a specialist in seed multiplication, which involves contract farming with local growers to reproduce and re-export overseas varieties. The service enables international customers to maintain production during their off-season.
Most of our seed multiplication customers are in Europe and the United States. From turf grass to white clover, our reputation for reproducing high-quality seed has led to strong demand for this service.
Our international partnerships are built on our local connections. We work directly with farmers at ground level, and we have developed strong relationships with local farming families – some dating back generations. Our team of agronomists undertake regular field inspections to monitor all stages of the growing process, setting a new standard in quality control.
