Perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) is a common turfgrass used for home lawns, sports fields, and golf courses. To meet consumer demand, large quantities of certified seed must be produced, packaged, and shipped to retailers. The largest production state for grass seed is Oregon; however few people know that Minnesota is also a major producer of turfgrass seed. Perennial ryegrass seed production is an important component of the agricultural economy in northern Minnesota, encompassing over 30,000 acres.
