Thursday, May 24, 2018

One of the things that we like to investigate at our Richland, Iowa research farm is how our products perform. Being the leader in clovers and having the #1 selling Perennial Ryegrass in the area, Albion, we decided to see what kind of feed we could get from a two-way pasture mix. Read More

Have You Considered Frost Seeding?

Thursday, January 04, 2018

Now is a perfect time to think about dormant seeding your pastures with a legume. Dormant seeding, or frost seeding, is accomplished by broadcasting seed across the frozen ground. The natural heaving of the soils in the winter works the seed into the soil. When temperatures warm up the seed will germinate and begin growing. In the past, the most prominent legume specie used in frost seeding was red clover. Grassland Oregon has introduced Frosty Berseem Clover, Fixation Balansa Clover, KY Pride Crimson Clover and AberLasting hybrid white clover that can also be sown in this manner. Read More

Turf Research Update

Sunday, October 01, 2017

At Grassland Oregon, we are excited about the future of our research efforts in turf. We continue to look for ways to bring new products to the market that are not just a repeat of what we already have. Some innovations we have, like Memphis, Wichita, and Olympus, have been performing well in the current tall fescue NTEP. We are also pleased to say that Birmingham is performing quite nicely in the Maryland/Virginia trials. Grassland Oregon currently has 3 new perennial ryegrasses entered in the 2016 Perennial trial (GO-141, GO-142, and GO-143). We can’t wait to see how they rise to the top! Lastly, we have entered 3 new Kentucky Bluegrasses in the 2017 Kentucky Bluegrass trial (GO-2628, GO-22B23, and GO-2425). These are varieties that will complement our current stable of Skye, Prosperity, andMilagro. Please keep an eye on all of these as we are sure that they will be an enhancement to your current program, now and in the future. Read More
