About Pastoral Genomics

Pastoral Genomics is a New Zealand research consortium for forage improvement through biotechnology.

Biotechnology will give the greatest stepwise and sustainable gains in forage productivity while maintaining and enhancing the sustainability and competitiveness of our country's meat, dairy and wool industries.

Our strong science, industry-led strategy, and emphasis on application and development will ensure we breed the best new cultivars and place them in the hands of our farmers first.

We only use ryegrass genes in ryegrass and clover genes in clover - we call this Cisgenics.

Pastoral Genomics is an industry-good organization funded by the Ministry of Science & Innovation, DairyNZ, Fonterra, Beef + Lamb New Zealand, DEEResearch and AgResearch.
