Pioneer® Seeds Australia’s corn maize hybrids are developed and tested in local conditions to ensure they represent superior products to what is currently available. Our hybrid maize varieties have something to offer farmers in all regions and cropping environments across Australia.

 

As with all our products, there’s always a Pioneer® Farm Services Consultant in your local area to help you choose the right hybrid maize seeds and provide on-farm backup and technical support — we’re committed to providing helpful management advice and support to assist local farmers in making optimum profit from our products.


With rapid advances in plant breeding technology, plant protection and crop management expertise, the stress tolerance and yield potential of corn has increased significantly. This means there’s greater potential for Australian farmers growing corn for grain to increase profits without increasing investments.

While yield potential varies across seasons, regions and farms, planting quality hybrids and making informed farm management decisions are key to economic crop production. With Pioneer® brand corn for grain hybrids and FarmCheck™ tools, farmers can select the right hybrids, improve farm system efficiency and maximise investments in quality seed.

What are the agronomic advantages of growing corn as a grain crop?

  • International demand for high-quality Australian grown corn grains continues to increase
  • Locally conducted STRIKE trials help growers match the right product to the right acre
