Negotiated ryegrass price is below 2004 level

SALEM - Perennial ryegrass grown in Oregon will sell for 5 cents less per pound than it did last year, under an agreement between grass-seed dealers and farmers who belong to the Perennial Ryegrass Bargaining Association.

The negotiated price, approved by the state Department of Agriculture, is 56 cents per pound.

Seed carryover from the past year and a larger amount of acres in production drove prices down, said Brent Searle, the agriculture department official overseeing the discussions.

About one-third of Oregon's perennial ryegrass is grown by farmers who belong to the bargaining association.
