ASP0117 Perennial Ryegrass

Description

Advancements in turf quality, specifically leaf texture, density and genetic color combine to give ASP0117 exceptional turf quality. This new, elite perennial ryegrass variety has an unsurpassed dark green genetic color which is achieved by color evaluations done without the use of nitrogen fertilizers. The exceptional turf density is achieved by this variety’s aggressive tillering growth habit which also aids in its ability to recover from injury. Other characteristics include improved mowing quality, excellent winter performance and a complete disease package. ASP0117 will perform in a wide range of climatic conditions and is an excellent choice for the overseeding of golf course and sports turf as well as a permanent turf in cooler regions.
