Our Seed

Services

Cherry Hill seeks out motivated farmers who are willing to use modern growing techniques under the supervision of a professional argonimist to ensure we produce high quality seed for our buyers.

Cherry Hill Coolstores will guarantee our services on Seed Growers seed. If you buy certified seed which is presented to Cherry Hill in good condition, and it breaks down, we will replace our cutting and services at no charge. Read more.

Grading

Services

The Grading Line is designed to handle high volumes of seed which need to be graded to get the seed to an acceptable standard. Our Grading Line is specifically designed to inspect seed that requires additional attention to raise it to a certified seed standard, i.e., removal of foreign matter, damaged tubers or any other undesirable traits the sample may have. It is a last resort to go to the grading line, to fix compromised seed.

Cool Storage

Services

All our cool stores control temperature, CO2 levels through auto-measuring and purging, and utilise ambient air to assist with humidity and energy requirements. They are all controlled through a central computer system which stops/starts and sends alerts if the storage environment is compromised. We have 16 cool stores and dry stores with a storage capacity of 15,000 tonnes.

Our cool stores all have modern, computer controlled plant and equipment capable of controlling temperature, CO2 levels, humidity whilst utilising outside ambient air when suitable to do so.

We are very proud of our cool store facility and happy to give you a tour and discuss your storage needs.

Cutting

Services

The potato cutting operation at Cherry Hill Coolstores is unique in that it allows the potatoes to be cut by hand or machine, or any mix of the two. Typically, our seed is cut 50% by hand and 50% by machine. Cherry Hill starts the seed cutting operation in April for an October planting, i.e., six months pre-cut.

We have developed systems which allows us to cut seed pre-storage. This is the opposite to normal cutting, 3 to 4 days prior to planting. Pre-cutting comes with a number of advantages.

The question remains: To pre-cut or not to pre-cut? It’s a management tool to pre-cut, and many of Cherry Hill Coolstore’s customers experience great advantages in pre-cutting their seed. These include increased yield, more even emergence and much less seed risk at planting time.

Bulk Unloading
