Are Your Grass Seeds Genetically Modified?

No. The advancements in our varieties are obtained by traditional cross-hybridization – or cross-breeding. This is accomplished by selecting parent plants for their specific traits and then transferring the pollen from one plant to the pistillate parts of the other plant, creating a new generation of plants with characteristics of the parent plants.

Genetically modified organisms (GMO's) are obtained when a single gene, or a small set of genes, from one plant are transferred into a new genetic background of another plant.
