Vetch

In South Australia, Vetch is grown for hay, stock feed, green manuring and as a hardy break crop. Centre State Exports will buy most varieties of vetch predominantly for export markets.

All vetch for export is sold in containers – in which Centre State is a specialist – with much being sold into Europe as bird seed.

Centre State receives and packs Vetch at Professional Grain at Two Wells, with shipping from Port Adelaide.

Purchases are made on forward or cash contracts in accordance with our terms and conditions , and keeping paperwork concise and understandable is one of the ways that makes Centre State easy to deal with.

Vetch

Vetches belong to the genus Vicia, which encompasses some 140 species. Member species are native to Europe, North America, Asia and Africa and vetch crops were amongst the first to be domesticated. Bitter Vetch was a crop of last resort in times of starvation and were included in the diet of the poor until the eighteenth century, reappearing briefly as black market food in the South of France during WWII. Vetch is an important pulse crop in South Australia. Not only is it a source of hay, stock feed and green manuring, its ability to grow on alkaline land and fix nitrogen in the soil is especially crucial where medics have failed.
