ASP0118GL Perennial Ryegrass

ASP0118GL is an elite perennial ryegrass variety developed specifically to provide increased resistance to Gray Leaf Spot, which can be a significant issue in cool season turf. It contains our latest genetics and in addition to Gray Leaf Spot resistance, ASP0118GL has also been screened for Brown Patch, Pythium and Rust disease complexes, resulting in an exceptional disease package. Advancements in leaf texture, density and genetic color combine to give ASP0118GL a superior overall turf quality. Other characteristics include improved mowing quality, excellent winter performance and an aggressive tillering growth habit. ASP0118GL will perform in a wide range of climatic conditions and is an excellent choice for the overseeding of golf course/sports turf, as well as a permanent turf in cooler climates.
