Native & CRP Mixtures

At Albert Lea Seed, we carry a selection of native seed mixes that meet most MN and IA NRCS requirements for the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), CREP seeding, filter strip plantings, and landscaping projects. Our native seed comes from Midwest growers and processors and is well adapted to the growing conditions of the Upper Midwest. If you need specific varieties or species you don’t see here, we can special order species and/or mixes for you.
Due to high dormancy and inert matter of some native species, mixes will not add up to 100%.
Included species and mixture content may vary.  Contact us for current mixture rates.
