In turf trials conducted at major universities across the nation, SR 5130 (experimental designation SRX 51G) has proven itself a winner. SR 5130 has exhibited adaptability to a variety of turf situations, from Northern climates south through the Transition zones, from the home lawn to the golf course fairway, and from sun to shade. SR 5130 is an excellent component for many turfgrass mixtures with perennial ryegrass, other fine fescues, browntop and bent grasses. Under medium and high maintenance conditions SR 5130 forms a fine, dense, low-growing turf that tolerates close mowing. Its lower growth form and stress tolerance makes it an appropriate low maintenance choice. SR 5130 shows a marked improvement in resistance to diseases like Dollar Spot and Leaf Spot. It contains high levels of viable endophyte which provides natural insect resistance and improved stress tolerance in adverse environmental conditions. SR 5130 is an ideal choice for environmentally-sensitive sites.
