Abstract/Contents:"Production of good lawnseed is an eleborate, technical procedure these days. Genetic integrity is guaranteed by cultivar naming. Natural climatic and soil advantages, talented and innovative agriculture, all-out efforts by dedicated seed producers, have caused the lawnseed industry to gravitate largely to the Pacific Northwest of the USA. This shift to agronomic production of select proprietary cultivars has been rapid, and has become the dominant trend of the industry. Yet, for the consumer, lawnseed remains a notable bargain; for only a few cents he can sow seed enough of even the most cherished cultivars to establish square meters of lawn with a thriving turf. The estimated costs for seed production in the Pacific Northwest are detailed in Tables 1 and 2. They are substantial compared to commodity crops, both in outlay and know-how."
