To our valued customers,
Twin City Seed appreciates being your trusted supplier of agricultural and turfgrass seed products. We take great pride in educating our customers in all the factors that may affect the success of their seeding efforts. That is why we’re reaching out to you today to share this letter from the Oregon Seed Association (OSA). Due to several factors — as highlighted in their letter below — seed supply for the next one to two years will be significantly reduced. This decreased supply coupled with an increased demand (again, highlighted below) have caused seed prices to rise steeply. It is rare for the OSA to send a letter like this, and I thought it important to get it in front of you as soon as I could.
As a result, we encourage you to reflect on your seed needs for 2022 and to consider placing your order and purchasing your seed now or by the end of the year to avoid experiencing the higher prices that are beginning to hit the market now. We have stock and can hold prices for a period, but we expect prices will continue to climb. We are happy to discuss your needs and what will work best for your business.
Twin City Seed thanks you for your support. We look forward to working with you through the potentially challenging time ahead and to continuing to be your seed supplier of choice.
