Mixture partner for better disease and stress tolerance
4 Turf tetraploid Perennial ryegrass has very good wearing qualities and germinates quickly. Exceptional tolerance to a broad range of environmental stresses.Increased chloroplast and chlorophyll production for improved nitrogen efficiency and deeper colour throughout the seasons. Enhanced root development, stronger and deeper root system. Significantly increased disease resistance, fusarium, leaf spot and red thread. The species is a highly suitable mixture partner for sports turf thanks to its slightly more open nature & because of its rapid establishment in a range of conditions.
