Corporate information

Since 1925, Hannaford has become synonymous with mobile, on-farm seed management, seed processing and seed treatment. It continues to focus its efforts in those areas of Australian agriculture best suited to this unique and highly effective business.

As seed continues to be recognised as a valuable conduit for improving production, it’s even more imperative today that growers "insure" their investment in seed with pro-active quality management of their seed inputs.

Since 1987 Hannaford has been a part of the global agricultural chemicals community and is now a UPL group company.

Farmers and specialty seed companies along with professional applicators have benefited from this global activity, with research and development brought to market more promptly.

The global family of UPL, and via Hannaford locally, are assuring farmers they will continue to seek out solutions to the challenges of modern farming by continuing to maximise the benefits of macro research and development down to micro single farm outcomes.
