Exclusive Grain Group
The Exclusive Grain Group is a program administered by Canterbury Seed in conjunction with UK wheat breeder John Blackman (Blackman Agriculture Ltd) to develop wheat and some barley cultivars specifically bred, selected and trialed for New Zealand growing conditions. The variety that was used for the world record attempt was 776, bred by Blackman Agriculture.
Growers who belong to this group enjoy amongst other benefits, exclusive access to the Blackman breeding program and varieties along with the potential to realise financial gain from new higher yielding cereal cultivars.
Participating companies in the Guinness World Record attempt include the Exclusive Grain Group, Blackman Agriculture UK, Canterbury Seed, Agronomy Solutions, Ballance Agri-Nutrients, Bayer CropScience, CLAAS Harvest Centre Canterbury, Power Farming Timaru and Rabobank.
