Oregon’s grass seed industry was hit by the recession just like everyone else, but the Oregon Department of Agriculture reports things are looking up. ODA spokesman Jim Cramer says he just returned from a trip to South Korea, and during the trip continues to hear the same comments. "Everywhere we went, the same message was heard. The product from Oregon is such high quality, we don't have any problems with it. That didn't go unnoticed by our seed industry. They should be bloody proud." ODA inspectors take samples of the grass seed and tests them for pests and diseases, and they get an phytosanitary certificate before they are exported. Cramer says exports to Asia being about 35% of the total market; and China is the biggest exporter of Oregon grass seed.
