GROWMARK acquires Allied Seed

The Nampa, Idaho based company offers forage grass, legume, and turfgrass seed.

Growmark Inc. announced the acquisition of Allied Seed LLC. Based in Nampa, Idaho, Allied Seed offers a full line of forage, turfgrass, and cover crop seed in addition to custom production, blending, packaging, and seed treatment services. Terms of the acquisition were not made public.

“Allied Seed is a recognized leader in the production and distribution of high-quality forage, turf, and cover crop seeds and is a key supplier to the Growmark System,” said Growmark Vice President of Seed, Keith Lawson, in a news release. “The acquisition of the remaining stake in Allied Seed supports our overall growth and supply strategies and positions us well to meet the increasing demand for cover crops as part of a comprehensive on-farm sustainability strategy.”

An estimated 20 million acres were planted with cover crops in the U.S. in 2020, according to the University of Missouri Center for Regenerative Agriculture. A new USDA conservation program is expected to increase this number to 30 million acres by 2030.

Launched in 2000, Allied Seeds contracts more than 25,000 acres of seed production, with processing plants in primary production areas for forage grass, legume, and turfgrass seed.
