From our home in the Willamette Valley, Oregon, the heart of grass seed production, OreGro serves a global customer base. Our Research and Development program gives us the ability to derive genetic materials from several continents and use cutting edge technology to create superior products. Award-winning in multiple categories, our turf and forage products are distributed at high volumes.

Founded in 1999, OreGro Seeds started small. Our founders, Bill Young, Don Herb and Joe McAlhany Sr., rented a small office just off Highway 99 in Shedd, Oregon. With a combined experience adding up to over 100 years, this team grew the company quickly. When Bill retired, Matt Herb joined the team as a partner and breeder, focusing on the development of proprietary turf and forage products.

We chose Albany, Oregon, right off Highway 34, for our second location because of it's position at the heart of the the Willamette Valley. Here, the business grew and shifted the focus away from commodities to proprietary turf and forages while adding value with  superior performance and customer service. We continued to prioritize flexibility and customer satisfaction.

In May 2017, OreGro became part of Nutrien group and placed under the  Dyna-Gro brand. With a bright future ahead, OreGro will keep striving to be a healthy and high quality company that provides the best service to our customers and community.
