Grains & seeds for sowing
New Zealand exports a variety of grains and seeds for sowing. MPI helps exporters meet the requirements of overseas markets.
Responsibilities of grain and seed exporters
Exporters of grains and seeds for sowing from New Zealand are responsible for:
- meeting the destination country requirements, like phytosanitary (plant health) requirements
- keeping appropriate records.
Who to contact
MPI uses authorised independent verification agencies (IVAs) to provide information for exporters including destination country requirements, ePhyto requests and verification, phytosanitary inspection, and pest surveys.
If you have questions about phytosanitary requirements, contact an IVA. For queries about seed varietal certification, contact AsureQuality.
