PBSeeds’ History

PBSeeds origins began on the 1200ha Blair family property at Kalkee, north of Horsham, where Peter Blair’s father Tom operated a mixed farming system of sheep and grains. It was in the 80’s that Peter saw traditionally grown grains begin to become less profitable and began experimenting with pulses, particularly chickpeas, lentils and field peas as alternative crops.

At that stage, pulse crops had largely been unseen in Australia and Australian adapted varieties and research were practically non-existent.  It was through imported Canadian green lentils that Peter began his pulse journey and to this day is why he is credited with being one of the Pioneers of the Australian lentil industry.
