The Pacific Northwest was producing hundreds of millions of pounds of grass seed during its most productive years in the nineties and still, 90% of the world’s supply of Kentucky Bluegrass is grown here in the states of Washington, Idaho, and Oregon. Washington State is the largest producer of the three and yields some of the highest quality turfgrass seed in the world. The climate of Washington is ideal for turfgrass seed production and affords producers the opportunity for high yields and relatively low risk of crop failure. Per the Washington State Turfgrass Seed Commission, Washington State dryland grass farm acres average yields of 500 - 1000 pounds per acre.
Kentucky Bluegrass is predominantly raised for turf seed used throughout the United States and abroad to grow lawns, football fields, golf courses, and pastures. With burn bans placed on many grass seed dominant counties throughout Washington State in 1998, much of the Northwest's production moved over the border into Idaho. That being said, the interest in grass seed as an alternate crop is steadily increasing across the region as producers have found other ways to clear field residue instead of burning, and grass seed prices have remained at relatively stable market prices. Farmers also consider Kentucky Bluegrass crops as a good land management tool, providing aid in the constant quest to prevent land erosion, increase soil nutrients, and provide natural water filtration.(waturfgrass.org)
