In June 2020 Sugar Research Australia Ltd (SRA) and New Energy Farms (NEF) started a program of research and development to introduce the NEF CEEDSTM technology into the Australian sugarcane industry.

CEEDSTM are small coated propagules directly drilled in the field like conventional seed. NEF have already licensed CEEDSTM for commercial sugarcane use in other key sugarcane markets including the US and Brazil.

Development work on the project is now fully underway with SRA in the Bunderberg region. A range current and emerging commercial SRA varieties are currently under the first stage of development testing for CEEDS production. Subsequent trials will examine germination, plant establishment and crop performance under a range of Australian production conditions, to inform potential adoption pathways.
