Nezperce Prairie Grass Growers Association was started in 1974. The organization brought together Kentucky bluegrass growers in a five county area. Today, parts of Latah, Nez Perce, Idaho, Lewis and Clearwater counties make up the growing area.
The climate, moisture and soil conditions of the north central area of Idaho is ideal for the growing of Kentucky bluegrass. Many acres of land in the five county area are more suited to grass growing than other grain type crops.
