Seed R&D and Training
Centor Group members have access to, and collaborate with the International Seed Academy, a not-for-profit organisation who offers professional seedsmen and woman, seed companies and public institutions, high quality, practical training across all seed technology through their Seed Captain and Seed Academy workshop programs, as well as on-site training and seminars.
Our R&D programs are focused on developing products from the ground up, using specialised equipment, technology and knowledge to meet international standards, with rigorous testing including phytotoxicity, stability, dust-off, solubility and flowability to ensure successful applications.
Trials, experiments and testing is always an important stage before a new technology is implemented into companies. Businesses base their investment decisions on proven data, and trailing provides this important information.
Centor Oceania holds a particularly unique place in the seed coating / enhancement industry. We have access to dedicated equipment that enables us to work on projects that are finely tuned in this area of research and development. You can benefit from this, in combination with the wealth of experience within our company, and our overarching organisation.
Training and education are the important part in a successful introduction to new seed technologies. Although these new technologies are relatively easy to be sourced, as well, protocols and systems easily purchased, but there is often little practical information, training or support available.
This is an area Centor Oceania are focused on. Currently in collaboration with institutions and universities in areas plant growth studies, new approaches to manufacturing polymers and new technology. If you're organisation would like to collaborate with us on future developments, please contact us.
