We make buying grass seed easy.


Innovative seed research and development.

Our commitment to intensive research results in a proprietary program of turf and forage grass varieties that have earned worldwide respect through our research affiliate, Peak Plant Genetics. We begin by listening and looking. We question leading researchers and professionals and consult with our distributor partners. We identify emerging industry trends and plan programs to meet identified needs. We investigate the performance of newly developed germplasm and evaluate their potential to fulfill our customers’ needs.

Our search for the best germplasm extends throughout the world. We continually look for improved pest and disease resistance. We demand high yield to insure efficient, dependable production. We work closely with research programs at Rutgers and Oregon State universities and other public and private breeding institutions.

Our selection process is rigorous and demanding. Each year, thousands of plants are screened in greenhouse, field, and demonstration trials. Of these, only a handful are selected for a five to ten year development program. These eventually qualify to carry the MVS logo.

Our approach is highly successful. At the USDA's National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) and other international official test programs, MVS varieties are consistently in the top grouping.

MVS is also a trusted supplier of wildflowers and native, ornamental, warm season, and common type grasses. Seeds carrying the MVS logo are found on golf courses and sports fields, sod farms, parks, corporate and residential turf, and other locations requiring superior appearance, performance, and value.
