Ideally located halfway between the North Pole and the Equator, with distinct seasons suitable for grass seed production, Oregon is the world's largest producer of cool-season forage seed. Grass seed production is one of the state's leading agricultural crops and is ranked 3rd in Oregon's Top 40 Commodities of 2006. Over half of the Willamette Valley is sown to forage grass seed. The northern end of the Willamette Valley produces tall fescue and perennial ryegrass, the southern end is covered in annual ryegrass and fine fescue is grown in the hills of Silverton. Almost all of the grass seed produced in Oregon is cool-season turf and forage seed crops. The main varieties of grass seed produced in Oregon are Ryegrass, Orchardgrass, Kentucky Bluegrass, Bentgrass and Fescue.
