Broccoli Seeds

Our Broccoli portfolio from Syngenta Vegetable seeds offers a broad range of genetics catering for all seasons and markets within Australia and New Zealand. Many of the varieties are aimed at the traditional broccoli head market, but recently a sweet baby bunching variety called ‘Matrix’ has been added to the range to supply the increasing bunching broccoli market.

Club root is a common root disease affecting many brassica crops, including broccoli. Syngenta now has a broccoli variety to combat this problem with a high level of Club root resistance, containing a gene known as known as TopRes™. This is an exciting development for the many growers that have concerns with Club root. The variety, known as ‘McLaren’, is also a very adaptable variety with a broad harvest window.
