SR 5250 Strong Creeping Red Fescue, is a highly adaptable variety because it thrives in both sun and shade and high or low maintenance. It has demonstrated superior performance in fairway maintenance trails and other trails with low inputs and no irrigation. The endophyte that is naturally present in SR 5250 provides protection against many insects and has been documented to improve disease resistance and stress tolerance. SR 5250 is a superb choice for blending with other fine fescues, browntop or perennial ryegrasses. SR 5250 has an improved, dark green colour and moderately fine leaf texture that compliments many of today’s browntop and perennial ryegrasses. SR 5250 also contains an endophyte strain that has been closely correlated with Dollar Spot resistance. In addition, SR 5250 has exceptional resistance to Red Thread, Brown Patch and Summer Patch. SR 5250 has an aggressive, dense growth habit but does not produce excess thatch.
Adaptation and use:
SR 5250 is perfectly adapted for home lawns, commercial turf and golf courses whether planted alone or in blends and mixtures. It performs well in sun or shade, and will tolerate a wide range of soil textures and conditions. It adds early Spring green-up and Winter colour to many blends.
