CHARACTERISTICS
SR 8650 turf-type tall fescue was developed for high turf quality with high levels of rhizome expression in dense turf situations. Then only plants expressing rhizome formation in turf plots were included in the final breeder block. The plants used in development were selected after high summer stress based on performance and appearance. SR 8650 is adapted to all areas where tall fescue is grown for turf. Rhizome expression in tall fescues can provide significant advantages in repair of damage from wear or disease. They must have the ability to establish quickly and persist under all maintenance regimes. SR 8650 also has high levels of viable endophytes to provide natural insect resistance and superior stress tolerance.

ADAPTATION AND USE
SR 8650 forms a very dark green, high quality turf with improved wear tolerance and rhizome formation. The moderately dwarf growth form combined with the ability to rapidly repair damage makes it ideal for all uses. Its high Brown Patch, Leaf Spot and Net Blotch resistance
enable it to look good all year, and it recovers rapidly if damage does occur. With SR 8650 you can have a high quality turf with reduced inputs.
