Seed Dressing

Luisetti Seeds clean, treat and pack all their own seed and grain from their two Canterbury sites thereby retaining complete control over its own seed cleaning quality and ensuring tight cleaning and packing deadlines are met.

At Rangiora the company has two cleaning lines on a 2.5 hectare site, close to the town centre.

At this site (Head Office), there is a large warehouse capacity, weigh bridge, seed driers along with two mixing and four seed treatment plants.

The seed export and import department operates from this site that is certified by New Zealand Customs as a secure export partner and has a quarantine facility supervised by the Ministry of Primary Industries.

At Ashburton the company operates four cleaning lines and four seed treaters from two modern warehouses bisected by a large tar sealed yard, where up to five truck and trailer units may be loading and unloading at the same time.

The Ashburton site (1.6 hectares) is also certified as a secure export partner of New Zealand Customs. Both sites are supervised and audited by the New Zealand Ministry of Primary Industries and are licensed to clean, pack, sample, treat and export seed according to New Zealand, OECD, ELJ and AOSCA protocols
