Our new turf seed was developed through an approach that encourages synergy and genetic diversity – this allows for better adaptation to a variety of environments and stress. Because it was developed through research programs and work with universities, it will have a wider array of varieties. Other seed companies often buy finished products that are sisters, very alike.
In addition, the seed is grown through plant selection (non-GMO approach) to create plant attributes like endophyte-enhancement, a natural occurring fungus that protects against insect and heat stress and fine fescues that express amino acid, Meta-Tyrosine which aids in inhibiting weed seed germination. These are both natural attributes that are bred in the varieties.
The new Hendrikus Seed is a 70% Perennial Rye, 15% chewings fescue, and 15% Creeping Red Fescue. This grass seed will germinate fast in warm conditions and grow in shady and sunny areas. The new grass will naturally help fill in bare areas and help create more drought tolerance in the lawn. Plus the fescues in the mix will also help slow down the take over of lawns by Annual Bluegrass (Poa Annua).
