Research and Market Exclusivities

Grasslanz invests in the development of new forage technologies either on its own or with commercial companies. Co-investment by commercial companies gives them some exclusivity with regard to the marketing and sale of technologies developed.

  • Neotyphodium ryegrass and fescue endophytes
  • Breeding of new forages, specifically:
    • Ryegrass and Fescue
    • White, Caucasian and Red clover
