Says Ge­orge Jel­bart, di­rec­tor of Fair­banks Aus­tralia: “Fair­banks Seeds has been sup­ply­ing seed to Aus­tralian veg­etable grow­ers for more than 90 years. Re­cently, af­ter a suc­cess­ful part­ner­ship with Syn­genta in Aus­tralia, Syn­genta re­quested our ser­vices in New Zealand to en­sure that New Zealand grow­ers can re­alise the full po­ten­tial of the ge­netic pipeline com­ing from Syn­genta.

From Mon­day 1 Jan­u­ary 2018, Fair­banks Seeds NZ be­came the ex­clu­sive dis­trib­u­tor of Syn­genta leafy and bras­sica, field cu­cur­bits and field solanaceae port­fo­lios within New Zealand. In ad­di­tion to this Syn­genta range, New Zealand grow­ers will now gain ac­cess to a range of Fair­banks va­ri­eties and the va­ri­etal ex­per­tise of the Fair­banks team” Says Ge­orge: “From our ori­gins as a seed mer­chant in the Queen Vic­to­ria Mar­kets in Mel­bourne, most Fair­banks va­ri­eties are nat­u­rally suited to the cooler cli­mates of south­ern Aus­tralia, which log­i­cally marries quite closely to the New Zealand re­quire­ments. In ad­di­tion to the above-men­tioned Syn­genta crops our strengths in­clude baby leaf salad va­ri­eties, bunch­ing veg­eta­bles and herbs. “

Cameron Rob­bie has been ap­pointed as the New Zealand sales man­ager for Fair­banks, com­menc­ing Jan­u­ary this year and based out of Pukekohe. “Cameron will work hard to en­sure that all New Zealand veg­etable grow­ers have ac­cess and can trial Fair­banks and Syn­genta va­ri­eties, with a view to im­prov­ing their cur­rent com­mer­cial crops. Cameron has ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in the New Zealand veg­etable seed in­dus­try and is ex­cited by the range of Fair­banks and Syn­genta va­ri­eties on of­fer to the New Zealand grow­ers.”

Fair­banks Seeds NZ is up and run­ning at its Pukekohe of­fice. “There we have a ded­i­cated fa­cil­ity, com­plete with seed stor­age and cus­tomer ser­vice team. We are ex­cited about in­tro­duc­ing our range to New Zealand and hope we can make our­selves use­ful to the veg­etable grow­ers of New Zealand”.
