Seed Research of Oregon is one of the founding members of an exciting, focused Research and Development program called the A-LIST.

The program was introduced by the founding members last week at the GIS show.

Turfgrasses are under considerable pressure from numerous groups and the A-LIST project will lead to sustainable turf varieties that thrive under low-input maintenance protocols.

Please see the attached brochure for more information on this initiative.

Our Success is Driven by a Culture of Ideas

Seed Research of Oregon was founded in 1983 on the understanding that the professional turf market – especially golf courses – badly needed improved and unique grass seed varieties. So we partnered with the university community, adapting our applied expertise to their research. And we worked hand-in-hand with our customers, listening to their challenges and ideas. The result of this cooperative spirit was exciting new products and services that met customer needs.

Decades later, our culture is still one where the ideas of our customers lead to breakthrough products like salt-tolerant turf varieties. For our innovative bentgrass we have been granted patents and recognized with a number of industry awards.

Even so, our proudest achievement is meeting the toughest demands of our customers – the golf course superintendents, architects and builders, sports field managers and turfgrass producers to whom our ideas make a difference every day. Seed Research of Oregon is recognized as the company that listens to its customers to come up with the best solutions to the most difficult challenges.
