“Current total seed production is circa 5,000 tons depending on availability of suitable land and annual yield,” the planning documents said. “The expansion opportunity will increase this to circa 6,000 over a period of the next two to five years.”

The steel-framed storage unit will be 73m long, with a ridge height of 11m. There will also be a concrete yard area to the north of the proposed building.
