TURF YOU CAN BE PROUD OF
When it comes to finding the right product for your turf needs, it is important to look for qualities that address your specific climate, environment, use, and soil type. There is one quality, however, that must remain consistent no matter what the application is; your turf must be reliable.
Turf is susceptible to an array of diseases such as rust, dollar spot, and pythium blight. Diseases like these can destroy an entire lawn. An excellent turf will not only be resistant to such diseases, it will have a quick recovery from wear and injury.
At Grassland Oregon, we search internationally for the best turf genetics. We then vigorously test our turf to make sure we deliver only the best to our customers: turf that will provide them a lead in the market, ahead of their competitors.
FORAGE THAT'S RIGHT FOR YOUR LIVESTOCK
Quality forages are an integral part of a profitable livestock operation; from planting to grazing and harvesting to market-ready animal product. We understand the importance of a productive and flourishing forage stand, no matter the climate or soil type.
For this reason, Grassland Oregon has worked on improving forages through broad breeding programs. By thinking outside the box, we strive to develop that unique piece that will complete your puzzle. We are constantly selecting for varieties that include such traits as high nutrient density and yield, palatability, drought tolerance, persistence, adaptability, low maintenance, and tolerance to low fertility soils. Each variety is created according to the needs of our customers and carefully fits into the bigger picture.
COVER CROPS FOR THE FUTURE
The adoption of cover crops is steadily increasing throughout the United States. Many industry experts see cover cropping as the way of the future. Conservationists point to cover crops as a necessary evolution in protecting soil and improving water quality. Leaving the soil undisturbed and keeping plant life growing for as many days out of the year as possible restores the natural cycles of the soil. Residue and roots create organic material in the soil, which serves as food to soil organisms. These organisms increase biological processes, which facilitate nutrient recycling and decrease nutrient loss caused by runoff.
Grassland Oregon, along with our global network of breeders and leading university researchers, are providing novel solutions for today's growing concerns. We are bringing new species and varieties to the forefront, along with the information and education you need to position yourself as a leader in your field--today, tomorrow, and for decades to come.
