About PGG Wrightson Turf

PGG Wrightson Turf is part of PGG Wrightson Seeds Ltd, Australasia's largest proprietary seed business.

PGG Wrightson Turf has been breeding turfgrass seed specifically for the Australasian environment for over 30 years and has established itself as an innovative market leader in turfgrass breeding, and turf research and evaluation. Our aim is to supply Australasian Turf Managers with high performance turfgrass solutions for the unique challenges faced by the Australasian turf industry.

Given the Australasian love for outdoor pursuits, it is imperative that our natural turf surfaces are able to perform in a range of climatic conditions throughout the year. To achieve this, PGG Wrightson Turf operates its own turfgrass breeding and product evaluation programme based from our research facility, Kimihia Research Centre on the outskirts of Christchurch, which is supported by additional trial sites throughout Australasia. We also supply the professional turf market in New Zealand with world leading non-seed products such as fertilisers, pesticides, line markers, machinery and mulch products, many of which have also been evaluated at Kimihia Research Centre.

Our philosophy is simple - we base the offering of turf products upon scientific principles derived from a number of local and overseas suppliers in order to utilise the leading technological advancements in turfgrass solutions. Products sold by PGG Wrightson Turf undergo a rigorous testing and screening process from our local and international research partners, including STRI UK, NTEP USA, ANTEP Australia, University of Sydney turfgrass programme, and NZSTI New Zealand.

This ultimately enables us to provide our customers with turf solutions that are tailored to meet their specific requirements.

PGG Wrightson Turf has invested heavily into the New Zealand sports turf industry and built a strong technical sales team that is backed by our scientific research group who ensure the right selection for your specific requirements.
