S&W Seed Company (NASDAQ:SANW)
Pasture Genetics Pty Ltd.
S&W Seed Company (Nasdaq: SANW) today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Pasture Genetics Pty Ltd., the third largest pasture seed company in Australia. The acquisition will expand and diversify S&W's product offerings in Australia and follows S&W's other recent initiatives in the country to become one of the leading suppliers of elite seed genetics to Australian farmers. Pasture Genetics' seed product portfolio includes alfalfa, medic, clovers, vetch, forage cereals, as well as pasture and other grasses. Its proprietary Goldstrike seed coating technology, which can address rhizobia inoculation and extend shelf life, is believed to be a key market advantage for the company.
