It All Begins With Research
PICKSEED operates one of the leading turfgrass seed research and development programs in North America. PICKSEED’s “WileyTurfgrass Research Center,” located in Corvallis, Oregon, is dedicated to developing top performing proprietary varieties.
PICKSEED also operates the most extensive private forage testing program in Canada, giving us an unmatched ability to identify varieties with superior yield and persistence, faster regrowth, exceptional forage quality and superior disease resistance specifically for tough Canadian conditions.
Backed By Excellent Relationships
PICKSEED has extensive, long term relationships with proven contract growers across western Canada and the north western United States, covering over 90,000 acres. Yields are proven and reliable through the diligent efforts of PICKSEED’s grower services departments and the experience, management practices and resources of PICKSEED’s grower base. PICKSEED has a broad and well diversified customer base across North America and international markets. Many customer relationships are long-standing in nature, backed by a passion for superior customer service. Excellent relationships with customers, growers and other suppliers are fundamental to the success of our business, and we are pleased that some of these relationships extend to personal friendships as well.
