Goalkeeper Perennial Ryegrass

Agronomic Characteristics

GoalKeeper provides an eye‐catching turf featuring improved quality, dark green color, medium‐high density, and a medium‐fine leaf texture. GoalKeeper has been tested in trials across the country: At Post Falls, ID, Enon, OH, Poolesville, MD, Allentown, NJ, and other locations.


Disease and Insect Tolerance

GoalKeeper has consistently shown improved pink snow mold resistance and winter survival, making it ideally adapted for northern regions. On the humid East Coast, GoalKeeper has had good performance against net blotch disease and brown patch. GoalKeeper outperformed Prelude II, Advent, APM, Manhattan II, and Fiesta II when net blotch activity was heaviest. In overseeding trials at the University of Florida, GoalKeeper was among the best in resistance to dollar spot.



GoalKeeper performs well alone or in mixtures with Kentucky bluegrass and fine fescue in temperate and transition climates. GoalKeeper is recommended for use on athletic fields, home lawns, industrial and school sites, golf course roughs, tees, and fairways where turf‐type perennial ryegrass is adapted. GoalKeeper is also suitable for winter overseeding of dormant warm‐season turf. Data from the overseeding trials at the University of Florida and the University of Arizona are available upon request.


Recommended Seeding Rate

Plant at 4‐8 lb/1,000 ft.2 (20‐40 g/m2 ) for permanent turf. For overseeding on dormant bermudagrass, use rates of 10‐30 lbs /1,000 ft.2 (50‐150 g/m2 ) on greens and 200‐500 lb/acre (224 ‐560 kg/ha) on fairways.
