Grass seed is a good crop choice for many growers in Washington. Eastern Washington growers have the advantage of a dry summer during harvest which is favorable for high-quality seed. Grass is especially attractive for submarginal cropland, and for restoring soil quality. Wheat grasses are better adapted to the lower rainfall areas or to soils with low moisture-holding capacity. Bluegrass, orchardgrass, timothy and bentgrass require high levels of moisture. Most grass species should be grown in rows for seed production. Nitrogen is the only fertilizer that can be expected to give consistent economical increases in seed yield in WA.
