4TURF DOUBLE TETRAPLOID PERENNIAL RYEGRASS

A new generation of tetraploid perennial ryegrass varieties, developed to be quick establishing, strong, deep-rooting and tolerant to stress.

It is ideal for home lawns and sports surfaces, particularly in areas with climate extremes like cold winters and hot summers.  For example, Tasmania and ACT. 

4Turf is better able to withstand a range of stressful conditions, such as drought, cold, disease and wear.

It has high wear resistance so it’s great for families with active kids and animals.
