Great Product, Best Price
HSR maize seed is available direct-to-farm and it’s a perfect opportunity for maize growers to compare HSR hybrid performance against their current maize choice.
Your paddock, your soil, your management, your result. A couple of bags up the middle of a paddock will give a true picture of how the crops stack up.
“We’ll be on-farm to check on the hybrids’ performance when invited”, says Guy Mason. “You can count on your Nutrinza and their HSR agronomy team to stand by you and your next HSR crop of maize silage.”
"We’re calling this the “Trial of the Century” because we’re letting our customers come to the verdict without any interference, we’re completely transparent and let the hybrids speak for themselves, and direct-to-farm means great savings too!!” says Guy.
With HSR maize seed and Volac silage inoculants, Nutrinza is focused on growing high-quality forage on-farm to complement their range of supplementary feeds.
Previously supplied through rural retailers, HSR now sells direct to the grower through the Nutrinza distributors, so that margin savings can be passed on to farmers and contractor customers.
“Nutrinza is the perfect partner for HSR,” says qualified agronomist and long-time crop consultant Guy Mason, who heads the collaboration in New Zealand.
“We’ve partnered with Nutrinza based on their strong background in delivering scientifically formulated and proven feed solutions to Kiwi farmers for over 20 years”.
HSR itself has been breeding maize varieties for 40 years using genetics sourced from around the world.
Not only is HSR maize seed the real deal, but it’s also a great deal at $429 per bag, around 15-20% better value than the other brands on the market. HSR hybrids compared favourably with competitor brands in the independent FAR Maize
Performance Trials that concluded in 2019. All HSR seed is Poncho-treated as standard to ensure your crop gets off to the best possible start – and it’s included in the price of $429/bag.
“HSR and Nutrinza are committed to absolute transparency in regard to seed quality”, says Guy.
HSR seed is the only New Zealand maize seeds breeder to put their germination test results on EVERY bag, reassuring a grower the knowledge that HSR seed is top quality and passes industry standards.
“In regard to ‘in-field’ hybrid comparative assessment, we want the conclusion to come from the ultimate judge......the farmer. All you need to do is plant a bag or 2 alongside your current hybrid and compare. Don’t let anyone tell you that the reason for a great price is that we’re selling low-quality stock, that’s simply untrue - you’re getting the best seed direct from the distributor, plain and simple”, says Guy.
HSR have seed ready to go for planting season and invites all interested now to secure some tested bags for your own on-farm trial.

Feed Storage on Farm
As with any grain or meal feed products need to be kept dry as moisture combined with heat can cause fungi to grow. Common on farm storage methods are: in a shed or unused fertiliser bin; in a covered pit; on a concrete pad; or in a cutting, covered with plastic sheet and tyres. Most feed should be used reasonably expediently (within 40 - 50 days). The longer you plan to store feed products the better your storage facilities need to be.
All animal feed products should be fed as part of a healthy balanced diet matched to the specific requirements of the herd. Nutrinza makes no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, as to the suitability of any of the products supplied to the specific requirements of your animals. Please note that recommended feeding rates are given as a guideline only and will vary based on the total diet and actual feed intake of your animals. It is recommended that you consult your vet, nutritionist or farm consultant before making any dietary changes. Nutritional information is based on accredited feed nutrition sources and sample test results. Specifications on an individual feed test will show some variation.
