Pioneer Hi-Bred Australia works closely with Australian farmers to develop seed products for local environments. Pioneer's head office is in Toowoomba, Queensland. Research and development is conducted there and at Wagga Wagga in New South Wales. The seed conditioning plant – the largest in the southern hemisphere – is at Narromine in New South Wales.

In Australia, Pioneer sells maize hybrids for grain and silage production, including varieties with the highest yield potential on the market. Pioneer produces consistently high yielding grain sorghum hybrids, which are ideal for all conditions.

Pioneer has a range of forage solutions, including: 'easy-grow', highly productive lucerne varieties; late maturing, vigorous forage oats with outstanding dry matter yields; and, highly palatable forage sorghum hybrids ideal for grazing, hay making or silage production. Pioneer also offers inoculants for silage and lucerne hay designed to improve animal performance.

Pioneer offers conventional and Clearfield canola varieties with high grain and oil yields and multigene blackleg resistance. Wheat varieties with consistently good yields and disease resistance are the latest offering from Pioneer.

Pioneer continues to lead the market with its versatile, high yielding mono and polyunsaturated sunflower hybrids.
