For more than 50 years, Sharp Brothers Seed has set the standard for top-quality seed for home, farm and commercial landscape use. Expanding markets dictated development of new and improved varieties of both warm and cool season grasses, various legumes, forbs and wildflowers. These newer varieties have joined the broad variety of seed species and local-source native seed produced to meet consumers' growing needs throughout the eastern United States, the Great Plains and the inter-mountain areas. High-quality, dependable Sharp Brothers' Buffalo Brand seed is the standard that is demanded throughout the United States and several foreign countries.
Today, Sharp Brothers Seed is the largest working seed producer in the United States. Sharp Brothers operates from two locations to serve the U.S. market and beyond. The primary location, and the one that serves the high prairie region, is the company headquarters at Healy, Kansas. The Greeley, Colorado location mainly focuses on the Rocky Mountain region.
CNSC has been a Sharp Bros. distributor and dealer since we opened the doors in 2004, so needless to say we trust Sharp Bros. and they trust us. The working relationship between Sharp and CNSC is tremendous and the seed comes from Greeley, CO so turn around time is the quickest of our seed suppliers.

Where yield and palatability meet. Forages are one of our specialties. A full line of: Hybrid Forage Sorghums, Silex BMR 503, Open Pollinated Forage Sorghums, Sorghum Sundangrass Hybrids, Warm Season Forages and Cool Season Forages. The brown midrib trait (BMR) has been part of our Canex®/Silex family of hybrid forage sorghums and Grazex family of hybrid sorghum sudangrasses since 2000. All hybrids with the trait are designated with BMR as part of the variety name. BMR is a visual marker for a genetic trait that causes the plant to accumulate less lignin. Lignin is indigestible and reduces the digestibility of other nutrients. Lowering lignin levels dramatically improves digestibility and consumption while reducing forage waste caused by bunk sorting or selective grazing.
These fast-growing crops planted to build soil structure and organic matter, prevent soil erosion and improve nutrient availability. Combinations of Brassicas, Legumes and Grasses have been developed to meet the needs of our customers.
