Infusion Perennial Ryegrass
With excellent seedling vigor and superior disease resistance, InfusionTM will get your project off to a strong start.
Infusion Perennial ryegrass was specifically selected for resistance to gray leaf spot and crown rust. Infusion was tested in the 2010 NTEP test under the experimental designation JR-178, where it excelled in overall quality, disease resistance, fine texture, density, and seedling vigor.
Infusion maintains excellent turf density and ground cover at mowing heights as low as .44 in. (1.2 cm), and as high as 2.5 in. (6.35 cm), making it a perfect choice for high maintenance settings like golf and athletic fields, but also parks, schools, and home lawns. Infusion is a popular choice for winter overseeding in the southeast due to its excellent resistance to crown rust.
Seeding and establishment may be done in spring or fall but be wary of summer or winter annuals. Plant seeds to a depth of no more than 0.25-0.50” below the soil surface to ensure good seed to soil contact. Thatch layers will only slow or impede germination success. After spreading seed keep the seedbed moist throughout the germination process, with extra care during the early stages to prevent seed from drying out after initial seed imbibition. Germination should begin within 5 to 7 days and be complete within 14 days. The stand should achieve high levels of percent cover by 21 days. Remember, the turfgrass establishment process may take 6 months to a year.
