    Some varieties of grass seed will be in short supply next season -- and higher prices!

    Two stories that help explain.

    I know these stories portray an accurate picture. I have personal contacts in the Willamette Valley. The enviornmental restrictions on field buring for the past 10-15 years have created this problem, as well as fungus and weed problems for the seed farms.
