QAS supply pasture seed of highest quality

Emphasis on seed quality

Q.A.S. places particular emphasis on seed quality. After harvesting, the raw product is dried and mechanically cleaned to the highest degree of purity, before samples are drawn for submission to the laboratory.

All seed lines are analysed by an independent seed laboratory for purity and germination levels, according to the rules laid down by the International Seed Testing Association (I.S.T.A.), before being released for sale.

Why Queensland!

The State of Queensland enjoys the unique environmental conditions required for tropical pasture seed production and seed producers have attained a high degree of expertise over the years. Queensland has developed a reputation as a major supplier of high quality, tropical and sub-tropical seeds to the rest of the world. Many varieties available through Q.A.S. are not produced successfully elsewhere in the world.
