Turfgrass Breeding

PGG Wrightson Turf specifically select and breed turfgrasses for Australasia's unique temperate environment. The process of plant breeding involves correctly selecting plants, both locally sourced and from international germplasm, that are genetically crossed, and back-crossed and then further selected for the characteristics that are sought after for the desired environment. From there, the suitable plants are rigorously tested in multiple turf trials spread throughout Australasia where only the elite cultivars are finally selected for commercial production.
