ASP0112 Perennial Ryegrass

Description

ASP0112 is a new, elite perennial ryegrass variety in the ASP lineup. It was developed using multiple cycles of selection from superior genetics and incorporates germplasm derived from one of our top performing NTEP varieties, ASP6004. Advancements in color, density, disease resistance and mowing quality combine to make ASP0112 an outstanding variety. Improved performance in cold temperatures allows ASP0112 to maintain is color and vigor longer into the fall in northern areas and throughout the winter in overseeding areas of the south. This variety has a dark green genetic color, which is evaluated without the use of fertilizers. ASP0112 is a fine textured, dense perennial ryegrass with superior turf quality that can be used for permanent and overseeding turf applications.
