FEATURES & BENEFITS:
FAIRWAY is an excellent blend of four fine fescue species; hard fescue and three sub-species of red fescue; slender creeping, strong creeping and Chewings. It is designed for overseeding, divoting and constructing free-draining turf areas on the golf course.
The red fescue cultivars in the mix are all excellent performers and are all top-10 ranked in the BSPB/STRI Turfgrass Seed booklet. Of particular note is the outstanding red thread tolerance of Barrisse (ranked #1) and Barpearl (#2), an important factor in fairways under low nutrition.
Hardtop hard fescue offers superior performance under many stress factors associated with turf areas that this blend is used for. These include drought, heat, cold and low nutrition (see Figure 1). SGT FINE FESCUE is recommended to course managers looking to incorporate higher proportions of hard fescue into their turf.
