varieties

Waratah aims to supply Australian grain growers with a diverse range of varieties suited to their individual needs and environments. Each varietal package is developed to suit a particular regional area and seed is produced within that region.

Currently, Waratah produces and markets both grain only and dual purpose triticale varieties, feed barley varieties, dual purpose oats and fieldpeas.
