Sweet Corn - Global Breeding
HSR (Snowy River) breeds, produces and markets hybrid sweet corn seed to all markets of the world.
We market our sweet corn seed under our original Snowy River brand, which became synonymous and widely recognized for quality and service.

With comprehensive breeding and testing programs in Australia (Temperate, Sub Tropical and Tropical), New Zealand, USA, France, Hungary, China, South Africa and Argentina.
We focus our breeding on creating hybrids which are reliably profitable for the grower, whether it be for processing or the fresh market.
Being able to react quickly is our supply chain strength. We pride ourselves on being "feet in the paddock" people, with short lines of communication between our breeders, seed producers and marketers.
Understanding the Markets
Our sweet corn breeder travels to all the main markets along with our marketers to ensure we have current and in depth knowledge of the market requirements.
We believe you can't breed unless you're in the paddock; you can't breed if you don't know the markets; and you can't know the markets if you don't know the people.
Our breeding programs focus on reliability, profitability and stress capacity. We want our sweet corn varieties to perform under a wide range of conditions.
We don't want "one hit wonders" and we don't want "prima donnas" We want varieties that make our customer money, year after year.
