Harsher than average winter weather may actually be a boon for lawn care companies heading into the spring planting season. Lawns may require more seeding and lawn care companies, coming off a slow quarter, will welcome sales and warmer weather. Scotts Miracle-Gro Co. lost $67.9 million in the quarter that ended January 1st. Seasonal fluctuations are typically expected and Scotts could be well positioned for a bounce back spring after a year in which grass seed sales nearly doubled. However, there is some concern that budget conscious consumers will be spending less this year on lawn care products.

On the regulatory side of the industry, the USDA recently approved Monsanto Inc.'s genetically modified sugar beets for spring planting. The modified plants are resistant to Roundup brand pesticide. In 2010, over 90% of all American sure beat crops were Roundup resistant varieties. Other sugar beet varieties require more pesticide applications, which are costly and harmful to the environment. The full USDA approval of Monsanto's Roundup Ready sugar beet is contingent upon completion of an Environment Impact Statement.
