Argentina has favorable agro-climatic conditions and trained human resources to produce quality seeds. Additionally, its geographic location is a comparative advantage that enables counter-seasonal production.
For the above reasons as well as its livestock farming tradition, the national list includes over 1800 varieties of forage species.
In the last decade, Argentine seed exports of temperate forage and turf species have increased by 235%, and the country’s trade balance has been positive for the last 6 crop years.
Furthermore, subtropical forage species are being promoted to increase pasture productivity in environments with limitations.
Argentina is focused both on consolidating and opening export markets as well as on developing new domestic consumption markets with a view to complementing domestic production with imports.
The Cámara de Semilleristas de la Bolsa de Cereales is an Argentine association whose members dedicated to forage and turf seeds, as well as related services.
Established in 1955, they currently represent close to 90% of the forage and turf seed market.
