Do you need clean seed? SADGA still has stocks of DBA Aurora and DBA Artemis available.
2020 is the 30th Anniversary of the release of Durum Seed in Southern Australia
2020 marks the 30th year that the first durum crops were commercially grown in South Australia. In 1990 twelve growers each multiplied two tonnes of the variety Yallaroi in order to produce 500 tonnes of seed, which in 1991 was distributed amongst another 40 growers to produce 13,700 tonnes.

Is you current durum crop suffering contamination of bread wheat and barley?
SADGAs seed multipliers offer growers pure clean seed for your next plantings. SAGDA multipliers are agronomically checked and certified and crops are rouged to remove any contamination if present.
Seed varieties on offer are DBA Aurora, DBA Spes and DBA Artemis.
Seed is available at harvest until December 1. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that seed will be available after December 1 as we do not have the availability of storage to support grower needs in the new year.
Seed can be order in three ways:
- 4 tonne minimum order for seed ordered in bulk off header
- 4 tonne minimum order for seed ordered in bulk and cleaned off header
- 1 tonne minimum order for seed ordered in bulker bags via seed cleaning facility.
All orders are subject to Terms and Conditions.
All orders received before December 1st will enjoy $100/tonne discount off the seed price.
If you are a SADGA member, in honour of your membership SADGA have applied $50/t discount.
Purchase Orders enable us to hold aside durum seed at harvest.

We invite you to join us in Adelaide to tour The Waite Campus to view the breeding centre where the Durum process begins, you will see robotics at work in the plant accelerator, and the state-of-the-art lab as well as Hugh Wallwork’s famous terraces and the glass houses where Hugh does all his crossings. We are also fortunate to be given an exclusive tour of the San Remo Milling Facility. A rare opportunity to see and understand the process of turning our golden grain into high quality pasta for the end user.
Following the tours which includes a complimentary lunch at Beltana Cafe we reconvene at the Charles Hawker Conference Centre Auditorium for the 2020 Durum Forum, a comprehensive, multi speaker insight into all things durum, plus reports of the seasonal trials and breeding program outcomes, new chemistry, as well as information about marketing at domestic levels and the global demand and much much more.
The program concludes with a complimentary two course meal at Beltana Cafe with special guest dinner speaker Deanna Lush. Deanna is an award winning journalist and Managing Director of AgCommunicators. Deanna has completed a Churchill Fellowship studying communication and engagement methods to improve the understanding of agriculture between rural and metropolitan audiences and delivered numerous presentations across Australia and across all food and fibre sectors on her Churchill recommendations to build trust in agriculture. Deanna’s work on trust in agriculture won her the Australian Farm Institute John Ralph Essay Award, she was recognised in 2019 as an emerging South Australian business leader in the InDaily 40 Under 40 Awards and winner of the 2019 SA AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award.
Deanna’s presentation ‘Earning trust with our community’ will draw together her learnings and insights from her travel and research, and enable us, as an agricultural community, to consider what we do on our farms day-in, day-out and how we communicate it
