Loddon Valley seed grading - The Land
LIKE many farmers, Andrew Curnow's dad, Don, decided to add another income stream to his Loddon Valley agribusiness so his son could get his start on the farm.
And so, 28 years ago, Loddon Valley Seed Grading was born.
Andy's dad purchased the small seed grading business complete with a mobile cleaning plant that cleaned and prepared seed for sowing. It measured each seed for length, width and weight, removing weed or shrivelled seeds and treated the remainder with pesticides and fungicides to increase yield.
